PREFACE 

It has been said by a wise and witty member of '82 
that it would be appropriate for those responsible 
for this book to apologize not only for its short- 
comings but also for its longcoming, and the Com- 
mittee, recognizing the appositeness of the remark, 
throws itself upon the mercy of the class. While 
the labor involved in the preparation of the book 
has been arduous it has been most interesting and 
greatly facilitated by the cooperation of the mem- 
bers of the class who, with three exceptions, have 
complied, in general very promptly, with requests 
for information and statistics. 

The Committee desires to extend its thanks to 
Abbott and Brewster to whose joint efforts is due 
the article entitled, "Our Instructors."

UNDERGRADUATE DAYS 

(CONDENSED FROM SENIOR CLASS statistics) 

We were all boys, and three of us were friends; 
And we were more than friends, it seemed to me; — 
Yes, we were more than brothers then, we three, . . . 
Brothers? . . . but we were boys, and there it ends. 

The Children of the Night. 

THE number of applicants for admission to '82 who 
crowded Alumni Hall in June, 1878, was the largest 
then on record, and the faculty was compelled to pursue a 
vigorous course of pruning in order that the class might be 
kept within what seemed to be proper bounds. We first met 
as a body in Battell Chapel on Thursday afternoon, Septem- 
ber 11, 1878, at five o'clock, where we were divided into six 
alphabetical divisions and assigned to our respective division 
officers. Our first recitation came the next afternoon, and 
the first man to recite was D. B. Porter, who was called upon 
by the "Rev. John," who subsequently succeeded in reducing 
our class from the largest on record to one of the smallest 
of then recent years, for, as Professor Northrop laconically 
expressed it: " '82 Petered out." On Wednesday evening 
we met '81 in a rush in the yard of the Hopkins Grammar 
School, where, by our superior weight and vigor, we won our 
first laurels, not only in the rush but in numerous individual 
wrestling matches, and thereafter maintained our form and 
our position on the sidewalk during the return march to 
the campus. 

The Record of September 14 gave us one hundred and 

[3 3 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

twenty men, with one hundred more out on conditions, which 
was a very large total membership; but in the same issue, 
while speaking of our great numbers, it quoted that little 
proverb which was very applicable to us, "The mills of the 
gods grind slowly, but they grind exceeding small." Our 
numbers were steadily reduced until at the time the first 
catalogue was issued we had only one hundred and seventy- 
four members. In the rush at the class boat races at Lake 
Saltonstall we repeated our victory and won. This was the 
battle which the New York Sun immortalized by a vivid 
account in which it magnified one injured arm into "five 
bruised and almost senseless bodies." We took the fresh- 
man fence two weeks earlier than any preceding class ever 
held it and were awarded the sophomore fence at the usual 
time. Our class supper was held at the old Pequot House 
at New London, but a detailed description of that event is 
unnecessary. Those who were there will never forget it, 
and no pen could represent the festivities to those who were 
not. 

In sophomore year we were victorious in the first rush, 
but hazing was largely eliminated because of a notification 
from the faculty that twelve men were held as hostages for 
proper behavior by the class in this particular. 

In junior year our appointment list was very large, as we 
had eight philosophical besides a much larger number than 
usual of the lower honors. Our Promenade was a great 
success and our Junior Exhibition of superior excellence. 
This year saw the death, by order of the faculty, of Kappa 
Sigma Epsilon and Delta Kappa, in whose halls we had so 
many good times in our freshman and sophomore years. 

Our senior year was marked in the latter part by the 
decease of our classmate Wentworth, when for the first 
time our ranks were broken by death. 

During our four years the course was enlarged and im- 
proved in several ways and a number of new professors

added. A new library for the Theological Seminary was 
erected and preparations made for the construction of a new 
Laboratory, the gift of the Messrs. Sloane of Xew York. 
Hamilton Park was supplanted by the Yale Field, which was 
purchased, developed, and almost entirely paid for during 
our time. 

The last recitation of the class was to Professor Phelps 
in Constitutional Law on Thursday, June i, at twelve 
o'clock, Hand being the last man called up and completing 
the record of the class with a "cold rush." 

Thirty-one members of '82 were born in Connecticut, 21 
in Xew York, 16 in Pennsylvania, 1 1 in Massachusetts, 6 in 
Maine, 4 in Illinois, 4 in New Hampshire, 3 in Xew Jersey, 
2 in Wisconsin, 2 in Louisiana, 2 in Minnesota, 2 in Ohio, 
and 2 in Kentucky, and i in each of the following States: 
Indiana, Vermont, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, 
Rhode Island, South Carolina, Maryland, and Michigan, 
while i was born in X^ew Brunswick and i in Syria. 

Forty-eight schools and eleven private tutors participated 
in preparing '82 for its college course. The Hopkins Gram- 
mar School prepared 15, Williston Seminary 12, Andover 
10, Hartford High School 5, Rockville High School 3, St. 
Paul's, Adelphi, Polytechnic of Brooklyn, and the high 
schools at Montclair, Bath, Bangor, Birmingham, New 
London, Buffalo, and Philadelphia 2 each. 

The average age of the class at graduation was 22 years, 
8 months, and 4 days, being the oldest average of any class 
to that date, with the exception of '8i, whose average was 
22 years, 9 months, and 26 days. '69 at the time of our 
graduation was the youngest class on record, her average 
age being 22 years and 8 days. The age of our youngest 
man was 20 years, 1 month, and 10 days, and of our oldest, 
32 years, 5 months, and 8 days. Our tallest man measured 
6 feet 2*4 inches and our shortest 5 feet 2 1 ? inches, while 
our average height was 5 feet 8% inches. Our average 



UNDERGRADUATE DAYS 

weight was 146 pounds 5.38 ounces; our heaviest man 
weighed 200 pounds and our lightest man weighed 115 
pounds. The average chest measurement was 36/2 inches, 
the largest measurement being 42 inches. 

During our sophomore year the Athletic Association of 
the college was reorganized and placed on a firm basis and 
became a member of the Intercollegiate Association. We 
won many events in the class games, while at the Mott Haven 
games one of our members won the mile run for two succes- 
sive years. Our class baseball nine was very strong, and in 
the spring of freshman year we won every game we played 
with a single exception, beating the Harvard freshmen 
not only in New Haven but at Cambridge, which was 
the first time that a Yale freshman nine had ever succeeded 
in vanquishing the Harvard freshmen on their own grounds. 
In our first year the college won the intercollegiate cham- 
pionship in baseball, and while in our sophomore year 
Princeton won the Intercollegiate Association championship, 
from which we had withdrawn, as we defeated her and won 
every college game played excepting one, the press of the 
country awarded us the college championship. This we 
again held the following year, having rejoined the Intercol- 
legiate Association. The Intercollegiate Football Associa- 
tion was formed in our freshman year, with Yale, Harvard, 
and Princeton as members, and the game was played with 
fifteen men; we beat Harvard, but were defeated by Prince- 
ton. In sophomore year our games with Harvard and 
Princeton w T ere both draws, and in the following year we 
defeated Harvard and again played a draw game with 
Princeton. In boating, although we originally had an ex- 
tremely strong crew, we were unfortunate, for one reason or 
another, in the class races. The history of the university 
crew during our course is more agreeable, though not ex- 
hilarating, we having won from Harvard in our sophomore 
and junior years and lost in freshman and senior years. 

C'7 1 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

The average expense for each of the four years was as 
follows: freshman year, $867; sophomore year, $923; 
junior year, $1048; senior year, $1063, making a total 
average expense of $3901. The price for table board paid 
by each member of the class throughout the course varied 
from $3.50 to $14.00 per week, the average price being 
about $5.25. Thirty-seven of the class helped support them- 
selves in various ways during their college course, of whom 
eighteen earned money by tutoring and six by writing and 
contributing to papers; three each by playing poker and 
teaching, two by singing, and one each by drawing, acting as 
a clerk, farming, collecting, working in the Library, acting 
as an organist, and taking prizes. The sums earned varied 
from ten dollars to one thousand dollars, one man having 
earned the latter amount during his course. 

Of the class, 85 were Republicans, 14 were Democrats, 
9 were independent, and there was one civil service re- 
former, while 8 had no definite political views. Thirty-four 
of the class had voted before graduation, and 23 expressed 
an intention of taking an active part in politics subsequent 
to graduation. In spite of Professor Sumner's teaching the 
class graduated 23 protectionists, while 9 were undecided 
on that point and the remaining 84 men were free-traders. 

Seventy-two of the class had no objection to alcoholic 
beverages, and 67 used tobacco in some form, all of whom 
except 15 formed the habit before entering college. Twenty- 
seven neither smoked nor drank. Four were arrested; two 
for a fight on the steps of Delta Kappa Hall, one for dis- 
turbing the peace, and one for swearing at a policeman. 
One of the first two was fined, but the other cases were dis- 
missed. Four men were called at various times before the 
faculty; 9 were suspended and 21 warned. 

Fifty-five members of the class were church-members, 
divided denominationally in the following manner: Con- 
gregationalists 22, Episcopalians 12, Presbyterians n, 

C§ 1

Baptists 6, Methodists 4. The sympathy of the whole class 
with the several denominations was as follows : Congrega- 
tional 35, Episcopalian 31, Presbyterian 19, Methodist 7, 
Baptist 6, agnostic 5, Jews and non-sectarian 2 each, 
Lutheran, Quaker, Unitarian, Deist, Utilitarian, Ingersollite 
1 each; 4 had no religious belief and 1 was undecided. 
Thirty of the class at some time engaged in work in the 
several missions of the city, and 25 of these regularly so. 

At the time of graduation it was the intention of 70 men 
to enter a profession, 29 contemplated entering business, 
and the remainder were undecided as to their future occu- 
pation. Of the professional men 38 intended to study law, 
17 medicine, 8 teaching, 4 theology, 1 civil engineering, 1 
mechanical engineering, and 1 chemistry. 

Presentation day was Monday, June 26, when Whitney 
read the class poem and Storrs delivered the oration. Com- 
mencement exercises were held in Center Church on Wed- 
nesday, June 28, with the ceremonies then customary, John- 
son being our valedictorian and Abbott our salutatorian. 
And so, having "made good friends and studied— some," 
we left our Mother's sheltering arms and hopefully started 
on our journey of life.

RETROSPECTIVE 

MORE than a quarter of a century has elapsed since '82 
passed from the campus, and during that long inter- 
val many matters of individual and general consequence have 
occurred. A few of our number have become famous and a 
few wealthy. Most of the class have made honorable rec- 
ords and maintained a good position in society and in their 
respective callings. Some of our strongest and our best 
have crossed the great divide, their careers, so full of prom- 
ise, cut short, their hopes, so vivid and enthusiastic, withered 
and dead. The College has become only a part, though still 
a large part, of the University; the old brick row has disap- 
peared, together with the fence as we knew it; many of the 
elms have been sacrificed, and the places which knew them 
are now the sites of imposing buildings. Instead of one 
campus there are three, while Sachem's Wood is taking 
form as a university field which in the not distant future 
promises to surpass all others. But the little oak still thrives, 
the old spirit survives, and the Yale of to-day is in all essen- 
tials the Yale of '82. "Though much is taken much abides," 
and though to the long absent one returning the surround- 
ings are strange and unfamiliar, the old college is still the 
Alma Mater and the tie of kinship remains unweakened.

President Porter 



OUR INSTRUCTORS 

THE intellectual atmosphere of the western slope of 
the Rockies is more hospitable to irrigation plans 
and railway projects than to educational matters. And if 
it is a relief to me to turn away for a while from such 
material preoccupations, and in obedience to our class 
secretary's request try to catch some memories of the Yale 
life of thirty years ago, nevertheless the limitations to my 
sketch of our instructors must be obvious. Look, then, 
for no complete account of the after lives of the men who 
awed us even if they sometimes won our admiration in our 
college recitation-rooms — for such they were in those days 
rather than lecture-halls. Do not expect from me any 
adequate judgment upon the educational value of their 
methods or their ideals. Dillingham has sent me the ad- 
mirable article by Professor Williams of '79 on the subject, 
and good reading it is. For a comprehensive survey of 
the Yale professors and tutors of our time and a well-poised 
appreciation of their work, go to that '79 Class Book, for, 
with few exceptions, our instructors were the same. 

It was the tutors to whom the duty fell of molding our 
minds by the rigorous curriculum of Greek and Latin and 
mathematics, as we freshmen, confident or timid as the case 
might be, stepped out from the narrow confines of our pre- 
paratory schools into the ampler spaces of the college. 
Beebe, Perrin, Phillips, Robbins, Peters, and Tarbell— I 
think that was the list of our regular freshman tutors. 

Who does not remember the enthusiasm of Tutor Phil- 
lips? If spherical trigonometry and analytical geometry 
never took deep root in my un-mathematical mind, it was not 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

his fault. A true teacher, in love with his subject, winning 
us by suggestions of undreamed-of mysteries like the fourth 
dimension, illustrating his teaching by strange models, al- 
ways kindly tolerant of our crude mistakes, shaming us out 
of our laziness by his assumption of interest on our part- 
it is a pleasure to recall his personality. I think we learned 
more from him than we could then realize, and every 
member of '82 must rejoice at his well-earned promotion to 
a foremost place in the Yale mathematical faculty and a 
leading position in the educational world. May the uni- 
versity long enjoy the fruits of his splendid abilities ! 

Our other mathematical teacher, Mr. Beebe, of a differ- 
ent temperament, no doubt, accomplished his work with un- 
swerving fidelity to the highest standards. There was no 
romance about his classroom; there mental discipline 
reigned. Frank Abbott (who ought to have written 
this entire article) has set down some reminiscences, 
and what he says about Tutor Beebe will find a response in 
many minds : 

"One member of the class, at least, looks back with much 
gratitude to the training in precision and accuracy which 
he set up as his ideal. With him no slovenliness in thinking 
or in expression was tolerated. The line of demarcation 
between what a man knew and what he didn't know was 
clearly drawn, and was made apparent to himself, as well 
as to the rest of the class. In Mr. Beebe's classroom 
every man stood at attention, for he didn't know when 
the dread sentence would come out, 'Jones, you may take 
it up there,' and no light upon the location of 'there' or 
the sequence to 'there' was to be had from the instructor. 
What an anxious moment that was when you stepped to 
the blackboard, pointer in hand, with dry lips and quaking 
knees, to follow the arcs, tangents, chords, and segments 
which your lucky predecessor had turned over to you ! 
Haec jam meminisse juvat." 



OUR INSTRUCTORS 

It is not so much the things they tried to teach us as the 
personalities of our teachers that left the most lasting im- 
pression on our youthful minds. I enjoyed Tutor Tarbell's 
courses, and I then thought I knew some Greek. But his 
austere, almost ascetic appearance is what clings in my 
memory. One evening he was a visitor at some society meet- 
ing, when a debate was on about free trade and protection 
(we had not then had the luminous lectures of Professor 
Sumner), and I well remember how I gained an added 
respect for our Greek tutor's versatility and logical intellect 
as he quietly punctured the hazy generalizations of our argu- 
ments with a few concrete facts, deftly indicating their appli- 
cation to either side of the question. 

Tutors Robbins and Henry Farnam both, as I remem- 
ber, guided us in our Latin study (the latter in our sopho- 
more year), but they were not destined to remain in this 
sphere of work. The former was about to enter upon his 
honorable career at the Connecticut bar. The latter has 
devoted himself to economic studies, and in that department 
has achieved a notable reputation, adding luster to the uni- 
versity. He won our respect by his unfailing courtesy; and, 
as partakers of his genial hospitality, many of us callow 
youth were initiated into a larger world of social amenities. 

Tutor John P. Peters was a Nemesis to many of the 
class, but I am thankful that some fate led me to listen 
to certain evening readings he gave in the Odyssey, open to 
all who chose to come. It is a commentary upon our 
old methods of instruction that I, at least, owe to these 
free readings, rather than to any prescribed course, some 
insight into the glory of the old Greek world, and the 
beauty of the Homeric poems. For this enlargement of 
the intellectual horizon I am glad to record my gratitude 
to one who, probably owing to the ill-judged methods of 
discipline then in vogue, won a reputation among Yale 
undergraduates aptly characterized by Professor Will- 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

iams, who says that Peters "will ever be remembered by 
the class of '79 as the Thing it came up against." Dr. Peters 
has earned his laurels since then in several widely dif- 
ferent spheres; and some of us who have known him in 
his later career honor him as a friend no less than as a 
scholar, a preacher, and a leader in practical social re- 
form. 

An additional commentary upon those educational 
methods which Yale has outgrown is afforded by Profes- 
sor Abbott, from whose notes I again quote in regard to 
another of our tutors: "Professor Bernadotte Perrin be- 
gan his long and honorable career as instructor and pro- 
fessor of Greek with our class in its freshman year. The 
subject was the Odyssey, in which even the fourth 
division would have felt a chastened pleasure under 
Professor Perrin's instructions, had it not been for the 
fact that, by an unkind decree of the faculty, we were 
doomed to read a book abounding in myths, and the sys- 
tem of instruction adopted made it necessary for us to 
familiarize ourselves with all the relatives of each god, 
demigod, and hero to the most remote generation. It 
proved to be an excellent system of mnemonics for those 
of us whose brains were equal to the strain, and Profes- 
sor Perrin softened the rigor of the system as much as 
possible, but we failed to catch a glimpse of the poet through 
the genealogies." 

Upon the work of another of our sophomore teachers, 
Alfred Thacher, I shall also borrow Abbott's words, 
for it is good for us to catch the point of view of one 
who is at home in that Augustan world which to most 
of us, perhaps, is but a world of shadowy figures: "With 
Mr. Thacher as guide we accompanied Horace from 
Rome to Brundisium, we strolled with him in Rome 
along the Sacred Way, and we shared the poet's simple 
fare while we listened to Cervius' story of the city mouse

and the country mouse. To Mr. Thacher we owed an 
introduction to all these delightful experiences, although 
far be it from me to suggest that we appreciated our good 
fortune at the time. But a wider acquaintance with life 
and a better knowledge of the Roman poet have shown us 
the debt of gratitude which we owe to our former instruc- 
tor." 

Professors Wright and Northrop were, I suppose we 
must all feel, the prominent personalities of our sopho- 
more classrooms. Honored names both! Professor Henry 
Wright is too well known to need any extended re- 
hearsal of his sterling work. He was my division of- 
ficer (we had no deans then). Unerringly just, yet kind, 
I knew him. And I do not wonder at the supreme suc- 
cess of his later work as dean. 

As head of the department of English literature 
Cyrus Northrop never sat stiffly in his professor's chair. 
A certain expansive good nature was temperamental 
with him, even when we must have bored him with our 
crude literary efforts. In the administrative work of 
upbuilding the University of Minnesota until it has be- 
come one of the great institutions of the West, he found 
his true career. His bonhomie has never deserted him; and I 
suppose many an old Yale man has been delighted, as 
I have been, to meet in later years the kindly encourage- 
ment he has always been forward to give. 

In junior year we had chemistry under Professor Arthur 
Wright, and physics and mechanics under Tutor (as he 
then was) Edward Dana. Had the Yale traditions of 
those days admitted such laboratory work as now uni- 
versally prevails, scientific studies under these men would 
have been more worth while for all of us. But their 
great abilities were not obscured in our eyes, even under 
the bookish methods which cramped their work. And 
though some of us may have failed to appreciate the

sciences they taught, they both had the respect and lik- 
ing of us all. I well remember one day, when, being 
asked by Mr. Dana to describe "convection," I endea- 
vored by much talking to cloud over the fact that I had 
not obtained the faintest idea from the book-definition, 
but I could not withstand the gentle astonishment in 
Dana's clear-eyed gaze, and I sat down confused, yet 
acknowledging him to be a gentleman even when he 
flunked me. 

It was the privilege of our class in junior year to have 
for our instructor in logic Arthur Twining Hadley, who, 
in the same year when '82 entered Yale, had become a 
member of the faculty, showing his versatility by teach- 
ing successively German, Greek, and logic. Abbott re- 
calls some interesting experiences: "After some training 
in logic, we acquired a certain facility in dealing with fal- 
lacies. With the aid of clues which our predecessors had 
set down in the second-hand copies of Jevons, secured at 
Gulliver's, we almost always scored a fall out of 'the 
undivided middle' and 'the false major premise.' It was 
an interesting game. In addition to the fallacies which 
Jevons furnished, Mr. Hadley gave us, from time to 
time, others of his own invention. These ranged all the 
way from topics in theology and political economy to the 
odds in betting. One Friday, late in November, in dis- 
cussing some fallacy, he was remarking upon the doc- 
trine of chances to the class, which was listening with a 
successful simulation of absorbed interest, when, with 
that impetuosity of manner which was not unusual with 
him, he said: 'Now, if I were betting on the Harvard foot- 
ball game to-morrow — ' It was a master-stroke. No 
man dared spend his time in the classroom day-dream- 
ing after that, when there was always a chance of pick- 
ing up a bit of expert information which might be valu- 
able in a field really important." We could not know in 



OUR INSTRUCTORS 

those days that the presidency of Yale awaited Mr. 
Hadley, and that the Yale of our day, with its halting 
educational methods, would under his administration be 
developed into a great modern university. But it re- 
quired no prophet to foresee that great things awaited 
him. 

We studied German under Tutor Zacher and Profes- 
sor Carter, another man destined for a college presidency. 

Professor Newton may not have been known to many 
of us, but as the conditions of a scholarship which I hap- 
pened to get in freshman year demanded that I should 
take calculus, it was my lot to come under his instruction. 
It was delightful to see the pleasure which he seemed to 
take in the abstruse mysteries of a study of which I 
never got more than a most remote view. 

Professor Tracy Peck, the Latinist, and Professor 
Seymour, the Atticist, were new instructors in our time. 
Latin and Greek being optional in junior year, the major- 
ity of our class did not come in contact with these scholars in 
the classrooms. They were both imbued with the ideals of 
modern education, and I believe could have taught us 
much, had we given them the opportunity. 

I am sorry that I did not take English literature under 
Professor Beers. Appreciation of his profound scholar- 
ship and his refined literary taste was lacking among us 
college youth, for the most part — owing partly, no doubt, 
to what seemed great reserve of character— a fact which 
leads not a few of us to vain regrets in after years. 

Xor was I of the discerning group who elected the 
course in American history with Professor Dexter. But 
it was open to all of us to know him in the Library, where 
we found him indeed a gracious host. Xo one who went 
there for things which the curriculum did not give us will 
fail to remember with gratitude his sympathy and readi- 
ness to help. I suppose many of us, returning in later 

D3n 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

years, have been surprised to find how accurately he re- 
membered us. His heart has ever been in Yale, and with 
Yale men in their work in life; and a figure like his, so 
closely associated with her academic shades, is one of the 
memories we can least afford to spare. 

While some figures undoubtedly have passed from my 
mind, of men who in those days loomed large, I cannot 
omit a reference to the good work of Professor Mark 
Bailey, who as professor of elocution directed our work 
in preparing for the junior ex. and for the commence- 
ment speeches. I now wish I had attended more to his 
valuable suggestions. Probably, also, there is good 
reason for me to regret that, being an Episcopalian, I had 
very little opportunity of hearing the preaching of Dr. 
Barbour, the college pastor. The impression, however, 
which I obtained from the daily chapel exercises and 
from his demeanor as we met him on the campus, inspires 
the belief that he was hardly what in the West is called 
"a mixer." 

Of the instructors of our senior year, Sumner and 
Wheeler stand out conspicuous, I suppose, in the memory 
of every member of the class. Strong personalities, yet 
of very diverse temperament, they taught us more than 
any others of our staff the necessity of clear thought 
grounded upon careful induction. It is true that they 
taught subjects for which our minds were then probably 
better fitted than they were for the abstract subjects with 
which our President dealt. The scintillating brilliancy of 
Professor Sumner's lectures on economics will never be 
forgotten. That you cannot "get something out of noth- 
ing" is a truth which he illustrated with infinite variety. 
And for this we must ever be grateful, even if some of 
us have moved (whether it is advance or retrogression 
this is not the place to say) away from the standpoint of 
enlightened individualism, of which Professor Sumner

was so distinguished a representative. Professor Wheeler 
might not soar like his colleague, but he left us no excuse 
for failing to get some understanding of the mighty sweep 
of historical forces. 

Of Professor E. J. Phelps, Professor Abbott writes 
an appreciation, which all will be glad to read: "It was a 
difficult task to teach to undergraduates a subject so far 
removed from common experience as international law. 
It was a difficult thing for an instructor accustomed to 
the more serious-minded professional students of a law 
school to adapt himself to academic students. Both of 
these things Professor E. J. Phelps accomplished with 
great skill. Such lectures as he gave us on his subject are 
rarely heard on this side the ocean. In their lucidity and 
charm of expression they suggested the Sorbonne, and 
reminded one of the finished discourses of a Boissier or 
a Martha. Professor Phelps had already won distinc- 
tion as a jurist when he came to Yale. A still greater 
honor came to him later when President Cleveland ap- 
pointed him Ambassador to the Court of St. James. We 
who had listened to his lectures in the Old Chapel were 
not astonished to hear of the delight which his public 
addresses in England gave, and those of us who came to 
know him personally after graduation were not surprised 
to learn that our cousins across the water found his con- 
versation and manner equally charming." 

W T ho does not honor the memory of the elder Dana, 
whose long life of devotion to science shed a glory over 
old Yale? In the classroom, I think, we did not feel his 
worth, but if a single-hearted enthusiasm for his subject 
did not meet with the response from us that it deserved, 
there were few of us who were not ready to yield him the 
respect due to his simple dignity of character no less than 
his hoary head. 

Professor Ladd assumed the chair of philosophy at

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

Yale in our senior year. The metaphysical habit of mind 
was not largely developed in any of us, and I fear that 
most of us were not attracted by this prescribed course. 
Professor Ladd was a leader, however, even if we did 
not all know it then, in that experimental psychology 
through which such great results have been accomplished. 
I think a few of our more mature men, having the good 
judgment to take an optional in this subject with him, 
found reason to be thankful for the choice. 

In regard to President Porter also, I think our recol- 
lections do not rest very affectionately on the studies of 
the classroom. But of his lovable personality there can 
be among us but one verdict. If we did not care for 
"The Law of Love and Love as a Law" as a text-book, 
we nevertheless were conscious that "Prexy" really guided 
his honorable life by the law of love. It is no doubt true 
that the advance of Yale in educational methods was re- 
tarded by the policy for which President Porter allowed 
himself to stand. Yet, if gentleness of spirit and tolerance 
and fair-mindedness count for anything, we Yale men who 
came under his influence may have received benefits which 
we could not then measure. 

In fact, this may be said of most of those men whose 
work I have so imperfectly reviewed, that, if wiser me- 
thods might have enriched our intellectual inheritance and 
given us a better hold upon the problems of life, yet in the 
sphere of character, in those elements of personal life 
which lie so much deeper than the intellect, they probably 
helped us more than we can ever know.

REUNIONS 

(CONDENSED FROM CLASS records) 

OX June 28, 1882, the ties which had bound '82 to New 
Haven were broken, and the band of men who as 
boys had corne together four years before at the Grammar 
School rush, and had worked and played together, whose 
numbers had now been reduced by cruel fate to one hundred 
and nineteen, was scattered to the four quarters of the 
country. Some immediately entered upon the work for 
which the four years had been a training and an inspiration; 
some were privileged to prolong, for a little while, the col- 
lege associations before they, too, essayed to take the places 
in the world for which our Fostering Mother had done her 
best to prepare us. 

Our TRIENNIAL in June, 1885, seemed a long way off, but 
it came at last and brought seventy-three of us together at 
New Haven. By the Saturday evening before commence- 
ment we had gathered together a goodly crowd, and the 
event was duly celebrated. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday 
brought many more, and in all the following members of 
the class reported: Abbott, Allen (J. F.), Allen (M. S.),

In the evening at seven o'clock we gathered about our flag 
at the fence, and, headed by a band of music, marched 
around the college buildings and then proceeded to the resi- 
dence of President Porter, on Hillhouse Avenue. The Presi- 
dent was not at home, but a hearty three times three was 
given for him, and the line of march to the Athenaeum was 
resumed, a halt being made for cheers at the house of ex- 
President Woolsey. 

At eight o'clock the class filed into the Athenaeum, on 
Church Street, and found the galleries crowded with ladies 
and their escorts, who were there to witness the presentation 
of the class cup. 

Sixty-nine members of the class and four former mem- 
bers—Dickinson, F. W. Clark, Folsom, and Seymour — mak- 
ing seventy-three in all, seated themselves about the tables, 
and after singing "Here 's to '82" were called to order by 
Piatt, who, as chairman of the cup committee, acted as pre- 
siding officer and toast-master. He opened the ceremonies 
with a few words of welcome and introduced Whitney, the 
poet of the occasion. The reading of the poem was con- 
tinually interrupted by laughter and applause. 

Then followed the event of the evening, the presentation 
of the cup to Russell Yale Hanlon, the Class Boy. The boy 
was there, looking his prettiest, and so were his proud 
parents. 

The presentation speech, which was made by Beach, kept 
the class and the audience in the galleries in an uproar of

REUNIONS 

merriment, and even the baby expressed so much enthusiasm 
as to be heard above all the rest. 

Hanlon accepted the cup in behalf of his infant son and 
thanked the class in appropriate words, and in conclusion 
presented each member with a photograph of the boy. 

The cup was then filled with champagne, and after the 
baby had taken a pull at it, and while he was crying for 
more, it was passed around the table, and everybody drank 
his health. 

During the dinner the class was entertained by listening 
to responses to the following 

TOASTS 

The Class, Asa P. French 

"Death cannot sever 
The ties that bind our souls through mortal years — 
They last forever."— Barnes. 

The Faculty, Frank F. Abbott 

"By education some have been misled." — Dry den. 

Our Clergymen, Benjamin Brewster 

"Priests are patterns for the rest." — Dryden. 

Our Lawyers, Theodore Holland 

"Whoso loves law dies either mad or poor." — Middleton. 

Our Physicians, Burnside Foster 

"Those lives they failed to rescue by their skill, 
Their muse would make immortal with her quill." — Garth. 

Our Business Men, Frank R. Gallaher 

"Through life's dark road his sordid way he wends, 
An incarnation of fat dividends."— Sprague. 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

Our Married Men, Wayland I. Bruce 

" Happy the man whom thus his stars advance ! 
The curse is general, but the blessing chance." —Parnell. 

Dear Old Yale, Charles B. Storrs 

"But to see her was to love her, 
Love but her, and love forever." — Burns. 

Owing to the absence of Holland, Gallaher, and Bruce, 
the toasts to which they had been assigned w r ere omitted: 
but impromptu speeches on various subjects by Bill Pollock, 
Jonas Long, and others served to fill the gaps in the pro- 
gram. 

Later in the evening the class of '75, which was celebrat- 
ing its decennial in an adjoining room, paid us the honor of 
a visit and received a cordial welcome. 

At last the festivities of the dinner were ended, and the 
class made its way to the campus, where a bonfire was 
lighted, and before the morning of commencement day had 
dawned the good people of the neighborhood had reason to 
know that the "glorious class of '82" was again in town. 

Our SEXENNIAL convened on June 26, 1888. About 
thirty-five members of the class attended the business meet- 
ing, which was held at Room B, Cabinet Building, at eleven 
o'clock on Tuesday morning. 

J. Howard Pratt, Jr., was chosen chairman. Messrs. 
Knapp, Pember, and Osborne were appointed a committee 
on obituary resolutions. 

The thanks of the class were unanimously tendered to 
the secretary for his past services, and he was thereupon 
instructed to prepare and publish a sexennial record, and 
to include in it, besides those who graduated, all who were 
with the class more than one year.

REUNIONS 

J. Howard Pratt, Jr., was elected to respond for the class 
at the alumni dinner on commencement day. 

After the adjournment of the business meeting, a class 
prayer-meeting was held at Dwight Hall, and at the alumni 
meeting, which was held at the same time, Badger was 
spokesman for the class. 

In the afternoon Yale beat Harvard at the Yale Field in 
a baseball game, on the result of which the championship 
depended. 

Immediately after the return from the ball game the 
members of the class assembled at the fence, and, headed 
by the American Band and preceded by the class of '78, 
marched to the corner of Church and Chapel Streets, where 
horse-cars were waiting to convey them to Hill's Home- 
stead, at Savin Rock, for the sexennial dinner. The classes 
of '53 and '78 dined in separate apartments at the same 
place and time. 

The liquid department was under the able management 
of J. P. Kellogg, and the liberality of those who attended 
the dinner enabled him to conduct it on a generous scale. 

There were no regular toasts to be responded to, but 
everybody was given an opportunity to display his eloquence 
if he had any. 

The dinner, while it was orderly, was informal, and for 
that reason seemed to be the more enjoyed. 

During its progress a committee from the class of '78 
entered the room, bearing the compliments of that class and 
also a bottle of wine, both of which were presented with 
appropriate words. 

At the same time Lyman, in behalf of '82, visited both 
'53 and '78 and presented each with a similar token of 
esteem. 

At the conclusion of the dinner it was learned that Ab- 
bott, who had recently been married, was spending his 
honeymoon at a cottage near by. It was decided to rout 

C45II 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

him out and demand an explanation of his absence from the 
festivities. The class, headed by the band, proceeded to 
the cottage, where, after a protracted serenade and loud 
calls for Abbott, the information was obtained that he was 
at the Sea View House. Thither the class immediately be- 
took itself, and shortly after it had made its presence known 
Abbott appeared on the upper piazza, showing evidences of 
a decidedly hasty toilet, and in eloquent words endeavored 
to calm his excited classmates. Nothing would satisfy them, 
however, but that he should accompany them back to Hill's, 
and, rather than argue the question, he yielded to their 
wishes. 

It was a late hour when the classes of '78 and '82 marched 
up Chapel Street to the campus amid a blaze of red fire and 
Roman candles, but plenty of graduates and undergraduates 
were on hand to join them in the powwow around the bon- 
fire and in songs upon the fence. 

The sexennial committee consisted of F. A. Kellogg, J. P. 
Kellogg, Knapp, Osborne, and Pardee, and received many 
well-deserved assurances that the meeting had been a suc- 
cessful and much enjoyed one. 

The following members of the class attended the dinner: 
Allen (M. S.), Badger, Barbour, Bate, Bates, Billings, Bolt- 
wood, Brinton, Brockway, Cragin, Curtis, Dickinson, Dil- 
lingham, Eno, Foote, Gallaher, Graves (C. B.), Graves 
(G. H.), Haskell, Kellogg (F. A.), Kellogg (J. P.), 
Knapp, Loomis, Lyman, Osborne, Page, Palmer, Pardee, 
Parsons, Pember, Pollock, Pratt, Sanford, Shoemaker, 
Smith, Welch, Whitney, Williams (H. L.). 

In addition to the above the following were in New 
Haven at some time during commencement week, but were 
unable to attend the dinner: Bruce, Campbell, Hopkins, 
Lewis, Rossiter, Silver (L. M.). 

We celebrated our DECENNIAL anniversary on Tuesday, 
June 28, 1892. A business meeting was held at No. 176

REUNIONS 

Lyceum in the morning, followed by a luncheon at the resi- 
dence of Billings. In the afternoon we went to the ball 
game, and in the evening had our dinner at the old Church 
Street Opera House. About fifty members of the class 
attended. Habenstein of Hartford catered, and Pope's 
Military Band, also of Hartford, furnished the music for 
the afternoon and evening. Those attending the reunion 
were: Allen (J. F.), Allen (M. S.), Badger, Baltz, Bate, 
Beach, Beede, Billings, Boltwood, Brewster, Brinton, Brock- 
way, Bronson, Bruce, Clement, Curtis, Eaton, Eno, Farwell, 
Foote, Graves (C. B.), Graves (G. H.), Haskell, Hebard, 
Hopkins, Kellogg (J. P.), Kingman, Knapp, Lay, Lewis, 
Loomis, Lovering, Lyman, McBride, McKnight, Osborne, 
Page, Palmer, Pardee, Parsons, Pember, Piatt, Rice, Scud- 
der, Silver (L. M.), Storrs, Welch, Welles, Wells. 

The first of our NEW YORK CLASS DINNERS was 
held at the Arena, in West Thirty-first Street, on April 18, 
1896. There were present the following men: Baltz, Bate, 
Billings, Brockway, Colgate, Dillingham, Ely, Hopkins, 
Kellogg (J. P.), Knapp, Lewis, Moodey, Osborne, Palmer, 
Parsons, Piatt, Stillman, Storrs, Welles, Wells, Williams 

(H.L.). 

These New York dinners have now become annual af- 
fairs. The first Friday in March has been adopted as the 
date, and the dinner is generally held at the Yale Club. 
There are usually thirty or forty men attending. 

Dillingham has presented a loving-cup to be awarded 
each year to the "long-distance" member of the company, 
on condition that if it be won by the same man for three 
years it shall become his own. 

At almost every dinner some member of the class is pres- 
ent who, for some reason or other, has not been with us for 
a long time previously, and the annual dinners have come 
to be regarded as oases where for one evening we live over 
again the happy days of the past. May they long continue 
to bring many of us together each year.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

Our QUINDECENNIAL meeting was held on Tuesday, 
June 29, 1897, and was attended by about fifty members. 
Osborne, the class secretary, called the meeting to order. 
The Parting Ode, written by Whitney for the class, was then 
sung. A vote of thanks was extended to the committee in 
charge of the reunion. Billings again kindly invited us to 
take luncheon at his residence, and the invitation was heart- 
ily accepted by all present. After luncheon the class attended 
the Yale-Harvard baseball game, and Hatch's Military 
Band of Hartford furnished the music. The dinner was 
held at the Anderson Gymnasium, on York Street, at seven 
o'clock, and was served by Sherry of New York. After din- 
ner French was appointed toast-master, and the following 
men responded to informal toasts: Foster, Beach, Lyman, 
and Sanford. A flash-light photograph was taken while the 
class was at dinner. There were present the following: 
Allen, Badger, Baltz, Beach, Beede, Billings, Brinton, 
Brockway, Bronson, Bruce, Clement, Colgate, Cragin, 
Dickinson, Dillingham, Eno, Farwell, Foote, Foster, 
French, Graves, Harkness, Haskell, Hebard, Hopkins, 
Kellogg (J. P.), Kingman, Knapp, Lewis, Loomis, Lyman, 
McBride, McKnight, Osborne, Pardee, Parsons, Pember, 
Piatt, Sanford, Shoemaker, Silver (L. M.), Snell, Stillman, 
Sweetser, Waller, Welch, Welles, Wells, Williams (H. L.) . 

The BICENTENNIAL OF THE UNIVERSITY, on 
October 20, 1901, brought together at New Haven the fol- 
lowing forty-four members of '82; Allen (J. F.), Allen 
(M. S.), Badger, Baltz, Barbour, Bartlett, Bate, Billings, 
Brinton, Bronson, Bruce, Clement, Dillingham, Eno, Foote, 
French, Graves (C. B.), Graves (G. H.), Hopkins, King- 
man, Knapp, Lay, Lewis, Loomis, Lowe, Lyman, McKnight, 
Moodey, Morris, Osborne, Palmer, Pardee, Parsons, Pem- 
ber, Piatt, Sanford, Shoemaker, Silver (L. M.), Snell, 
Welch, Welles, Wells, Wight, Williams (H. L.). 

Barbour was a delegate from the University of Nebraska.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

Our class lunched at the Quinnipiack Club on Tuesday, Oc- 
tober 22. Every one who attended the Bicentennial will 
always be glad to have been there, for it was an occasion 
never to be forgotten. 

Our VICENNIAL meeting was held on June 24, 1902. 
Thirty-one members of the class attended the business meet- 
ing, which was held at F 1 Osborn at 1 1 130 A.M. Parsons 
called the meeting to order, and it was moved, seconded, 
and carried that Badger act as chairman. He thereupon 
took the chair. In the absence of the secretary, Palmer 
was elected secretary pro tern. It was moved by Parsons 
that there be elected at this and each succeeding meeting 
one to serve as president of the class, who shall preside at 
all meetings of the class, appoint committees, and act with 
the secretary in furthering the interests of the class. The 
motion being duly seconded and carried, Knapp was put in 
nomination and unanimously elected. He then took the 
chair, and, on motion of Badger, the thanks of the class 
were unanimously extended to Osborne, the class secretary, 
for his many services to the class. Parsons then moved that 
the president appoint the following committees : 

Class Dinners in New Haven and elsewhere. 

Class Book. 

Class Finance. 

The motion was seconded and carried. 

In the afternoon the class attended the Yale-Harvard 
baseball game, accompanied by the Waterbury Military 
Band, and upon their return the class picture was taken 
from the steps of the Library. 

The class dinner was held at the Anderson Gymnasium, 
on York Street, at 7 p.m., forty-one members and three non- 
graduates being present. It was served bv Maresi of New 
York. 

Piatt acted as toast-master; there were no regular toasts

responded to, but impromptu speeches were made by many 
of the men present, all resounding with praise of Yale and 
'82. The Waterbury Military Band was in attendance, and 
the speeches were interspersed with songs and music. Dur- 
ing the dinner Knapp announced the committees which he 
had appointed in accordance with Parsons' resolution— the 
following (with the president ex-officio a member of each 
committee) to serve from 1902 to 1907: 

Dinners and Twenty-fifth Reunion: Parsons, Lyman, 
J. P. Kellogg, Pardee. 

Class Book: Dillingham, Rice, Palmer. 

Finance: Welch, Eno, Farwell. 

There were present at the dinner the following: Allen (J. 
F. ) , Allen ( M. S. ) , Atterbury, Badger, Bate, Bates, Bentley, 
Billings, Brinton, Bronson, Dillingham, Eno, Farwell, Foote, 
Graves (G. H.), Griggs (C. M.), Haskell, Hawkes, Hop- 
kins, Jefferds, Kellogg (J. P.), Kingman, Knapp, Loomis, 
Lyman, McBride, Moodey, Osborne, Palmer, Pardee, Par- 
sons, Pember, Pierce, Piatt, Rice, Richardson, Schuyler, 
Shoemaker, Snell, Stillman, Sweetser, Welch, Wells, Wil- 
liams. 

During the following five years the annual dinners were 
held in New York, and preparations were made for what 
was to be our greatest and best gathering, when friends, 
some unseen for twenty-five years, were to come back and 
drink again from the fountain of youth, which exists for 
those who know what friendship is, and who have tasted the 
joys of companionship under the elms of "dear old Yale."

THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

The most elaborate and altogether successful twenty-five-year re- 
union ever held by any class in New Haven was probably that of the 
class of 1882 this year. 

Alumni Weekly, Commencement Number, 1907. 



THE foregoing quotation is no eulogistic exaggeration, 
but the expression of a well-considered and apparently 
universal opinion. Our late reunion was as perfect in whole 
and detail as can well be imagined. With every wish to 
avoid extravagant language, it can truthfully be stated that 
the ideal was attained, and that, while other classes may in 
the future approximate or perhaps equal the success of '82, 
the record established by her will never be broken. The 
committees on entertainment 
and finance, working in har- 
mony, organized a function 
based on correct principles, 
and, with what must have en- 
tailed immense personal effort, 
successfully carried through its 
complex arrangements to a 
complete and faultless termi- 
nation. While the thanks of 
the class are due to each and

every member of both commit- 
tees, it will perhaps not be in- 
vidious to suggest (contrary to 
his wishes) that without the un- 
tiring zeal and resourcefulness of Billie Parsons the results 
accomplished would have been impossible of attainment.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 




The Club House 



A class reunion, while primarily intended to reunite old 
friends, awaken sleeping memories, and renew the feelings of 
youth and good-fellowship, has also the broader purpose of 
arousing the spirit of college loyalty. Both of these objects 
were accomplished, and it is probably true that few of those 
registered left New Haven without a greatly quickened love 
for class and classmates, and a deeper veneration for the 
old university and all for which it stands. It may be added 
that every man likewise experienced a stimulated sense of 
the individual obligation which corresponds to the privi- 
leges conferred by Yale. 

The unusual success of the celebration may be attributed 
largely to the fact that, by reason of the entire expense 
being made a first charge upon the class fund, all financial 
difficulties were obliterated from the minds of those attend-

ing. Moreover, the entertainment committee, recognizing 
the requirements of men arrived at middle life, made them 
physically comfortable, and so arranged that physical com- 
fort coincided with sociability and fraternity. The accom- 
modations of the Hutchinson were excellent, while the club- 
house and tent were unique, 
most attractive, and highly 
practical. At no hotel in 
town could the men have 
found better sleeping-quar- 
ters than were furnished 
them, and the club formed 
a center to which all instinc- 
tively drifted when other- 
wise disengaged. The house 
itself is the well-known 
Thatcher residence, on 
Crown Street, and the man- 
sion was completely fur- 
nished by the committee, 
and tastefully decorated 
with bright-colored pictures 
loaned through Dillingham 
by the courtesy of Charles 
Scribner's Sons of New 
York. The entire yard in 
the rear of the premises was 
covered with a large tent completely draping a small shade- 
tree in the center, and fitted with round tables and many 
easy chairs. Lighted at night by electricity and Chinese lan- 
terns, and abundantly supplied with push-buttons, it formed 
a delightful lounging-place. The class is indebted to Loomis 
for the idea and its realization. The whole club was in 
charge of Flemming, a competent and thoroughly satisfac- 
tory caterer, and no spot in New Haven could compare with 




The Tent 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

our own club in attractiveness and comfort. In consequence, 
old cliques failed to revive without affecting the renewal of 
old friendships, and it is doubtless true that the intimacies 
encouraged by the surroundings aroused, in many instances, 
feelings of mutual regard, esteem, and friendship between 
men who had been indifferent companions in undergraduate 
days. 

While the expense of the reunion was considerable, it can 
be asserted with confidence that the college will gain more 
through the increase of loyalty and enthusiasm resulting 
than it would have gained from the application of the 
amount disbursed to its endowment funds, and it is highly 
probable that, as a practical investment expressed in terms 
of dollars and cents, the money was well applied. More- 
over, in spite of this depletion, the fund donated by the 
class amounted to eighteen thousand dollars, a sum ex- 
ceeded only once by any former class. This not inconsid- 
erable gift was raised by the committee on finance, under 
the chairmanship of Welch, without anything in the nature 
of undue pressure, and was supplemented by a gift of 
twenty-five thousand dollars from Stillman to the fund 
for increasing the salaries of the professors of the uni- 
versity. 

The following men, eighty-two in number, registered at 
the club, and this auspicious numeral was not the result of 
padding or juggling of any kind: Abbott, Adams, Allen 
(J. F.), Allen (M. S.), Atterbury, Badger, Bailey, Baltz, 
Barbour, Bartlett, Bate, Beach, Beede, Bennett, Bentley, 
Billings, Boltwood, Brinton, Bronson, Burpee, Camp, Case, 
Clement, Colgate, Corey, Cragin, Dillingham, Douw, Eno, 
Farwell, Folsom, Foote, Foster, French, Friend, Graves 
(C. B.), Graves (G. H.), Griggs, Haskell, Hawkes, Hop- 
kins, Hull, Jefferds, Kellogg (J. P.), Kingman, Lay, Lewis, 
I oomis, Lowe, Lyman, McBride, McKnight, Moodey, 
Morris, North, Osborne, Page, Palmer, Pardee, Parke.

THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

Parsons, Pember, Pierce, Piatt, Pratt, Rice, Rossiter, San- 
ford, Schuyler, Scudder, Shipley, Shoemaker, Silver (E. V.), 
Silver (L. M.), Smith, Stillman, Sweetser, Titche, Welch, 
Wells, Wight, Williams. 

It is safe to say that none of the class failed willingly 
to return, and while every one of the absentees was missed, 
the fact that illness prevented the attendance of Howard 
Knapp, always an enthusiastic classman, and long the presi- 
dent of '82, was especially regretted. The long-distance 
record was made by Jefferds, who journeyed from Portland, 
Oregon, to be on hand, but Richards did his best to rival 
that record by sending Mrs. Richards and their son from 
Los Angeles, California, to represent him. 

Although the festivities were scheduled to commence on 
Saturday, June 22, the number that sat down to the first 
table d'hote in the club-house on the evening of that day far 
surpassed expectations. The men drifted into the tent singly 
and in pairs all the afternoon and evening, and by the time 
dinner was served enough were on hand to guarantee a suc- 
cessful reunion so far as numbers were concerned. Those 
present from the beginning had their reward, for the plea- 
sure of first greetings was like the glow resulting from the 
first glass of champagne. The alternating expressions of 
doubt, hesitancy, and joyful recognition as friends of long 
ago met in the tent that Saturday evening were the source of 
a pleasure always keen, at times humorous, and occasionally 
tinged with pathos, which nothing in the after days quite 
equaled in kind. The advantages of the house and tent 
were demonstrated and appreciated, and from the beginning 
the allurements of the Graduates' Club and other social 
centers were unavailing. At dinner Parsons announced a 
change in the schedule for the following day, and, through 
the courtesy of Eno, a trip on the Aquilo was substituted 
for a luncheon at the New Haven Country Club. 

C59] 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

On Sunday morning an opportunity was given, and grasped 
by many, to listen to the President's baccalaureate address, 
and then forty-five members of the class, accompanied by 
the wives of twelve, and numerous sons and daughters, 
enjoyed to the uttermost Eno's hospitality. 




The Aquilo 

The weather was per- 
fect, and the beautiful yacht 
swept gracefully past the 
Thimble Islands, around Faulkner's Island, and returned 
to the harbor, while, during the sail, luncheon was served 
and appreciated by all on board. The serene and peaceful 
spirit of innocuous happiness experienced by those partici- 
pating in the excursion is typified on the opposite page by 
the illustration of contentment as personified by Archie 
Welch reclining in the stern of the Aquilo. 

The landing at New Haven was made in time for such 
as chose to attend the organ recital at Woolsey Hall, after 
which the men gathered in the tent until dinner was served. 

[60] 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

Toward the close of the meal first one and then another of 
'82's old instructors arrived in response to an invitation 
from the committee, and on adjourning to the tent the class 
was delighted to renew its acquaintance with Tutor (now 
President) Hadley, Dean Wright, and Professors Phillips, 
Arthur Wright, Wheeler, Beebe, Dana, and Farnam. 

Professor Beebe had thoughtfully brought with him the 
little book in which were recorded the marks in mathe- 
matics awarded by him in freshman year, and it was with 
feelings of mingled surprise and pleasure that it now tran- 
spired for the first time that no member of '82 fell below 
3.50 in Euclid or Chauvenet. The faculty appeared to 
enjoy the experience as well as the class, and the innova- 
tion is one which will probably mature into an established 
custom. 



On Monday the men breakfasted leisurely in the club-house, 
and thenstrolled, motored, 
or rode by trolley to the 
picturesque grounds of the 
New Haven Country Club, 
on the highlands border- 
ing the upper stretches of 
Lake Whitney. To most 
of the class the view of the 
club was one of first im- 
pression, and its charms 
were appreciated by the 
men and the many wives 
and children in attendance. 
Justice was likewise done 
to the more material plea-

sures of the luncheon, and the cuisine of the club was voted 
most excellent. 

The fact that '82 maintains her ancient prowess in ath- 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

letics was demonstrated by the victory of her golf team, 
composed of Bronson, Billings, Pardee, and Pierce, over 
that of '77, with which a match game was played, and 
that our class and its wives excel in personal pulchritude is 
attested by the photograph on the opposite page taken on 
the piazza of the Country Club. 

The attractions of Lake Whitney, not to mention those 
of the ladies, beguiled the men until time barely sufficed to 
return to town and meet the trolley-cars chartered to take 

the class to Momauguin, on 
the shore of Long Island 
Sound just beyond Morris 
Cove. 

The evening that fol- 
lowed was one to be remem- 
bered long. It was midway 
in the reunion week. Most 
of the men had arrived, and 
the pleasures of the preced- 
ing days had only whetted the appetite for other festivities 
to come. Joy and good-fellowship reigned supreme. Though 
the water was cold, it could not chill the blood of athletes 
like Lyman, Piatt, Parsons, Bate, Kellogg, and Graves, all 
of whom insisted on plunging into the briny billows, osten- 
sibly for aquatic enjoyment, but presumably to provide an 
excuse for stimulants other than such as Xeptune serves. 
In any event, all the bathers were members of the demon 
chorus, organized by Rice and Piatt as an antidote to the 
angel choir, led by Williams and Bartlett. The effect of 
the mixed music was superb. The Jackson Trio were not 
"in it," and Lyman and Welch simply reveled in the intoxi- 
cating strains of harmonious melody. The weird sounds 
finally aroused the spirits of the vasty deep, and the return 
to town was veiled by an impenetrable mist.

Tuesday was a strenuous day. In the morning was held 
the meeting of the alumni, when Abbott becomingly re- 
sponded for '82 in an excellent and impressive address. He 
said: 

"Fellow Alumni: I find it a little difficult to adjust 
my dramatic imagination to the situation which presents 
itself to me here, for I assure you that there is not a man in 
the class of '82 more than twenty-two years of age. I was 
convinced of that fact at our dinner last night; I was con- 
vinced of it again this morning only a few minutes ago, 
when I sat below the platform, as I used to do, and listened 
to the distinguished president of the University of Min- 
nesota, who is so intimately connected with the associations 
of many of us when we were undergraduates here, and I am 
afraid that the quarter of a century which is supposed to 
have elapsed since the class of '82 left here has not settled 
upon us as yet. We are still seniors, juniors, sophomores, 
or freshmen; we are still climbing the stairs of the Athen- 
aeum or the Lyceum; we are trying to guess what Euclid 
I. 34 is about, and we are waiting in the fond hope that 
dear old President Porter will be beguiled by our eager 
but speechless attention into answering himself, as he used 
to do, the question he has just asked us. To expect one, in 
circumstances of this sort, to make a comparison between 
the condition of the college long ago and that of the present 
time, or to express some sage opinion about the policy of 
the university, confuses us by a sort of dual personality 
with which we seem to be invested, and makes it difficult 
for us to take up our expected role of alumni — who are no 
longer young. But to play that assumed part, not to be 
recreant to what the program calls for from us, I may say, 
speaking frankly, perhaps, not only for the class of '82, 
but for those who were graduated at about the same time, 
that, as men half-way between the radicalism of youth and

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

the ultramontanism of age, the policy which the university 
is following under the wise leadership of our President, a 
policy which is a combination of liberalism and conserva- 
tism, recommends itself very strongly to us. 

"In the way of progress, Mr. Chairman, we are glad, of 
course, all of us, at the large number of new buildings which 
have been added since our time. We were glad to hear this 
morning of the additions which have been made to the funds 
of the university, as reported by our President; but we have 
been much more impressed, as we have followed the his- 
tory of the college, and as we have seen conditions here this 
week — we have been much more impressed, I say, by the 
changes which do not meet the eye — by the greater efficiency, 
for example, which has come through the improvement of 
the administrative system; by the increase in the teaching 
force of the university, upon which, more than upon build- 
ings, a university depends; by the addition of new depart- 
ments of study, to which some reference has already been 
made this morning; by the increase in the salaries of mem- 
bers of the faculty of professorial rank. By this last action, 
which the President announced in his annual report of 1906 
was only the first step forward, Yale has not only more ade- 
quately recognized the faithful, efficient, and brilliant ser- 
vices which her faculty is rendering her, of which we are 
all aware, but she has helped to give a dignity to the teach- 
ing profession elsewhere, and has set an example which 
other universities are already preparing to follow. Had 
it not been for the taking of this step, there was immi- 
nent danger, in my opinion, that our universities in the 
future would attract to their faculties only men of mediocre 
ability. Yale has helped to avert that catastrophe. [Ap- 
plause.] 

"We sympathized also, I am sure, as we listened to the 
President's report this morning, with the steps which are 
being taken now, and have been taken in the last twenty-five 

C66H 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

years, toward drawing more closely together the Sheffield 
Scientific School and the Academical Department. We all 
approve heartily of the development of the Graduate 
School, and of what the President has reported to us of the 
plans of the university looking toward the extension of its 
facilities in the way of publication. All of these things have 
served to make Yale what she is to-day— a university in 
reality as well as in name. That is one side of the picture 
which presents itself to us as we come back here now. With 
much that is new, of which, I think, all returning graduates 
approve, all that which we regarded as essential in the old is 
still left. The university still holds that there is no short 
cut to learning, that an education can't be measured off, like 
broadcloth, in hours and courses, that this is still a place of 
discipline. [Applause.] 

"We are glad, too, that Yale has not cast to the winds 
the educational wisdom of generations; that she does not 
say to her young men of eighteen or twenty: 'Experience 
counts for nothing; choose whatever course suits your fancy 
of the moment, or fits into your athletic schedule' ; that this 
place which we have known and loved, all of us, is still an 
institution of liberal learning, and not an antechamber of a 
law school, a medical school, or a railroad office. 

"During the last twenty-five years since my class has 
been out of college there has been a great seething of new 
ideas in education. We have seen many universities driven 
across the trackless sea of unrestrained individualism, un- 
limited electives, and utilitarianism; we have seen others 
pitching and rolling, but making no progress. Yale has set 
her sails to the wind, but she has set her rudder true. Hers 
is a liberalism which combines that which is best of the old 
and that which is good in the new. The fact that we, in 
coming back, find her holding so faithfully to the sound 
ideas which we believed in when we were undergraduates, 
makes our return this week seem to us a genuine home-

coming, however much may be changed to the external eye. 
[Prolonged applause.]" 

Immediately thereafter luncheon was served for the class 
at the club-house, and while it progressed the business meet- 
ing was comfortably despatched. In the absence of Knapp, 
president of the class, Parsons presided. 

Proceeding with the election of officers, Welch, in putting 
Knapp in nomination for reelection as president, referred 
to the illness which prevented him from being present. At- 
tention was called to the fact that, as a leading spirit, he 
had always attended every reunion and had done more for 
'82 than any other man. The nomination was immediately 
seconded; there were no other nominations, and Knapp was 
unanimously reelected president. 

Bentley, speaking directly to his classmates, stated that 
the chairman need not pay attention to him, as he intended 
to ignore the chairman. He said, very truly, that in all 
the work which had been done by way of preparation for 
this most successful reunion Billie Parsons had had a very 
important share, and he said it was evident to all what Par- 
sons had been doing since the week began. "Partly because 
of the misfortune which temporarily prevents active work 
by our class president, partly because two are better than 
one, partly because Billie is such a good fellow and we all 
love him, I am going to suggest that we add to our list of 
class officers that of vice-president." With this testimonial 
he nominated Parsons for vice-president; the nomination 
was seconded, and Parsons was unanimously elected vice- 
president of the class. 

Osborne resigned the position of secretary, which he had 
held since graduation, and Dillingham was elected. Bentley 
moved that a vote of thanks be passed to Osborne for his 
work in behalf of the class, and for the good care he had 
taken of the men at each reunion.

THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

Welch, in making report as chairman of the finance com- 
mittee, said that he wished to express to the class personally 
what he had endeavored to say in his letters, namely, that 
they had turned a task which he had looked forward to 
with a great deal of misgiving into an inspiring one, and he 
wished to thank each member individually for the royal re- 
sponse which had been made to his begging letter. It was 
his belief, he said, that each member of the class had paid 
what he ought to pay, and whether the subscription was five 
dollars or five thousand dollars, the amount represented the 
limit that the individual should give. He announced that 
the subscriptions amounted to something over twenty-four 
thousand dollars, which would permit of promising the 
university a gift of eighteen thousand dollars from the class 
after all of the expenses of the reunion had been met, in- 
cluding the cost of the Class Book. 

Bronson presented to the class, to be given to the univer- 
sity in his name and in that of his sons, a copy of a song 
which, written by an undergraduate, had evidently been pre- 
pared for the use of the class of 1796. 

A vote of thanks was extended to the committee in charge 
of the reunion, and to Eno, who had so delightfully enter- 
tained the class and their families on his yacht the Sunday 
previous. 

The secretary and Abbott were appointed a committee to 
prepare resolutions on those who had died since the last 
reunion. These resolutions appear on a later page. 

Lyman moved that the members of the various commit- 
tees be appointed by the vice-president, and during dinner 
on Wednesday Parsons announced the following: 

Annual Dinner and Thirtieth Reunion: Lyman, chair- 
man; Loomis, Welch. 

Finance: Piatt, chairman; Clement, Stillman. 

Class Records and Thirtieth Anniversary Book: Palmer, 
chairman; Jefferds, Shipley.

While enjoying the cool breezes at Momauguin on the 
previous evening the class had manfully voted to march to 
the Athletic Field. Pardee, however, with forethought 




The "March' 



bordering on genius, had retained the refusal of two trolley- 
cars as a precaution, and a motion to reconsider the resolu- 
tion of the preceding night was made and unanimously and 
enthusiastically carried. Accordingly, the "march" was 
confined to a promenade from the club-house to the Univer- 
sity Library, where, in accordance with immemorial custom, 
the class picture was taken on the steps. Then, cheered by 
the strains of the Wheeler & Wilson Band, three of whose 
members were connected with it twenty-eight years ago, 
when it accompanied '82 to its freshman dinner at the 

C70] 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

Pequot House, the men boarded trolley-cars and rode com- 
fortably and as beseemed their years to the field. There, 
again forming in order and with the right of line, the class 
marched and countermarched until the seats reserved for 
its use were reached, whence the men viewed with delight 
the costumes and antics of their juniors, reveling in an orgy 
of color and motion which typifies a celebration unknown in 
'82, but now sanctioned by long tradition. The ball game 
was a success in so far as Yale defeated her ancient ri- 
val, but otherwise lacked interest. The spectacle itself 
was what appealed to those of the class, including most, 
who had not seen a commencement game in twenty-five 
years. 

The return to the club-house was by trolley, and then, 
with a short interval for refreshment, the class, with its 
attendant band, marched to the house of the President of 
the university, who greeted it with a few happy allusions. 
The march was then resumed and terminated at Heub- 
lein's, where the apogee of the reunion awaited the 
class. 

The dinner was well chosen, well cooked, and well served. 
The wine was choice, cool, and abundant, and, when the 
fragrance of the coffee blended with the aroma of the cigars, 
silence was requested, the lights were extinguished, the eve- 
ning star arose, and Chester Lyman shone superb. What 
followed was a complete surprise. Upon a curtain in the 
darkened room were cast reflections of the days of long 
ago: the "old brick row," the State House, the arching 
elms, the campus as of yore, the youthful athletes, the ven- 
erable Woolsey and Prexy Porter, the various class pic- 
tures, and finally, as a reminder of the flight of time, the 
first grandchild of '82. For two hours Lyman held the 
class spellbound in the chains of old association, and then 
the pageant faded like a pleasant dream, and with the lights 
the usual features of the banquet were resumed.

Boys, boys, boys ! I am glad to see that you have predeter- 
mined that this is to be an informal occasion. [Applause.] 
And I beg to tender to you my apologies for keeping my coat 
on. [Derisive yells and cries of "Sarcasm!" The re- 
moval of your coats bespeaks informality, and informality 
leads to intimacy, and intimacy discloses ties that one would 
otherwise not be aware of. I see before me Foote and 
Pardee elbow to elbow, the tie of Foote matching the shirt 
of Pardee. [Applause and laughter.] Now we have a 
good deal to dispose of to-night, and having disposed of 
considerable in the way of viands, we still have a good deal 
of business to attend to on this occasion, and we must try 
to serve it up lively. 

I suppose those of you who have attended the dinners in 
New York have probably looked forward to its being in- 
evitable to have those letters read, those letters from absent 
members, and I am sorry to say that there are more absent 
members than we had anticipated. The attendance is 
hardly up to expectations, and lacks a little bit in loyalty in 
not reaching the number of eighty-two, 1 which, at the last 
dinner in New York, I prophesied would be reached. 

You have noticed, if you have looked beyond the page of 
viands on the menu, that the toasts savor of the classroom; 
but that selection of toasts was made with the idea of taking 
you back to the past. You know that one of the most im- 
portant things in college and college life was to be able to 
render a good excuse, and we have selected an adept in that 
line to respond to that idea. His excuses will be, not on 
behalf of himself, however, but on behalf of those who are 
absent for one cause and another. Let us hope that it is due 
to circumstances beyond their control — acts of God, as they 
are called in business circles. 

Before calling upon the man who is to respond to that 
idea, I want to say that he is the one with whom I and sev-

eral others have been working for some time in the prepara- 
tion of these events which you have been undergoing and, 
I hope, enjoying. [Applause.] It has been a pleasure to 
work with this man, who is not to be mentioned until the 
proper time (I am working up a climax, you see), and I am 
very, very glad that he received the stamp of your approval 
at the business meeting this afternoon, and is henceforth to 
be designated as the vice-president of this class. [Applause 
and cries of "Hurrah!" I wish to remind you that when 
he was in college one of his claims to conspicuousness was 
the fact that he was the vice-commodore of the Yale Yacht 
Club, and, as my friend Rice has anticipated me in saying, 
somehow or other the word "vice" seems to be inseparably 
connected with Billie Parsons' name. [Applause and 
cheers.] 

Parsons: I want to explain that I was once a real live 
commodore, and not a I'/Y^-commodore. I was the second 
commodore of the Yale Yacht Club, and I have a prize in 
the shape of a flag which some of us sailed for on a catboat 
racing up the harbor. 

Well, fellows, seriously, this part usually falls to my lot, 
and to-night I have the regrets which have come from a 
number of the men; but before reading them I want to call 
upon you, all of you, to fill your glasses and drink to the 
health of the absent ones. 

A Voice: There is nothing to fill them with. 

Parsons: Well, get something. Fellows, the absent 
ones. [Toast is drunk in silence.] 

Eno: I should like to propose a toast to the president of 
this class, who cannot be with us. I should like to propose 
the health of Howard Knapp, the friend of all, who cannot 
be with us to-night. 

Toast-master: We will do homage to Howard a little 
later. 

Parsons: Such an occasion as this always makes me wish 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

I was a poet; but, not being a poet, I have to take some- 
thing that one of my poetical '82 friends (Welch) has 
written : 

Friendship I sing, and youth, those fires that, lit 
At birth, break out in boyhood into flames 
Refining and impelling, and, unwatched, 
Will flicker and die out in later years ; 
Yet fires that may burn brightly all through life, 
And always will when sons of Yale shall meet, 
And, turning fevered eyes, shall stretch their hands — 
In memories — to Alma Mater: for 
She needs but to be call'd, to lovingly 
Bend down and blow the slowly dying fires 
To furnace heat, with breath that brings again 
The perfumed springtime of our boyhood days. 



The first "regret" that I have to read is from members 
of the faculty, and I am sure you will share their regrets 
that they were not with us Sunday night. Professor Sumner 
writes to Chester that he received the invitation and regrets 
very much that, owing to his being out of town, he was 
unable to be with us. Professor Richards writes from 
Westville, Connecticut, regretting very much that he could 
not be present, and desires to have his compliments pre- 
sented to the class. 

A Voice: Did you ask Johnnie Peters? 

Parsons: Johnnie Peters is in New York. 

Fellows, I am sure you would like to have me read these, 
if I only read the names. 

A Voice: Read the letters. 

Parsons: Morgan Beach regrets that he cannot be pres- 
ent, and sends his affectionate remembrances to you all from 
Washington. [Applause.] 

Our old friend Snyder writes that he is unable to be 
present. 

D6I1 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

Badger: What did he say? 

Parsons: I won't read it all. I will pass it over to you, 
Walter. I think it would do you good to read that letter. 

Burpee writes that he very much regrets that he cannot 
be present, and wishes to express his pleasure at the remem- 
brance of our invitation. 

Pardee: Was that on a postal card, Bill? 

Parsons: Yes. 

Kinley, from Urbana, Illinois, says that he is sorry not 
to be with us. 

Trowbridge writes from New York that he cannot be 
present. 

Martin Welles, as I think many of you know, is in Eu- 
rope. More than a year ago, when we were having our 
annual dinner in New York, Martin Welles wrote us 
that he was very anxious that the fund to be raised by us 
for the university should be as large as possible, and that 
he would be glad to contribute to it. That was more than 
a year ago, and unfortunately, during all that time, for more 
than a year, if I mistake not, Martin Welles has been in 
Europe on account of ill health. 

[At this point in the proceedings a passing brass band 
in the street played "There '11 be a Hot Time in the Old 
Town To-night," and all joined in singing the chorus.] 

A Voice: Did you hear that band, Billie? 

Parsons: Now here is another from our old friend Rut- 
ledge. He says, among other things: "I am awfully sorry 
to say that I shall not be able to be present. I shall be 
with you in spirit, even if not in the body." 

Ben Brewster telegraphed at the very last moment that 
he was unable to be present. He had for a long time looked 
forward to coming. The last note I had from him was that 
he hoped to be present with one of his boys, and a day or 
two after I got a telegram saying he had been unable to 
come on.

Ted Holland writes— 

A Voice: Is that on a postal? 

Parsons: Yes, there is a lot on it, though: "Of all sad 
words of tongue or pen — no" 

Gardes sends his regrets from Sherman, Texas. 

Billie Vought writes from Buffalo: "I have held off from 
answering your letter of the 7th in the hope I could give a 
favorable answer to the invitation to the twenty-fifth re- 
union of the class of '82. I had fully intended to be there," 
etc. 

Here is a letter from Dick Richards; his boy was with 
us at the ball game this afternoon. [Reads letter.] 

This is from Jonas Long. 

Sam Hebard had, up to the very last moment, expected 
to be present. He telegraphed on June 24: "My mother's 
very serious illness prevents my leaving home." 

Here is a letter from Gardena, California, which just 
reached me to-day from E. A. Weed. 

A Voice: Hurrah for Weed! 

The next is from Miller, whom, I fancy, few of us have 
seen for many years. 

A Voice: Is that Jack? 

Parsons: George B. Miller. [Reads letter.] 

Besides these, fellows, I have received a number of 
shorter notes with just a word of declination, regretting 
that the fellows could not be present. [Applause.] 

Toast-master: The letter from Weed, which I have 
heard for the first time, suggests the fact that he is engaged 
in the occupation of horticulture, and I have heard from 
another source that he is in consultation with that horticul- 
tural wizard, Luther Burbank, and they do say that Weed's 
children are peaches. [Laughter and applause.] 

Now I wish to extend a greeting, not only to the fellow 
graduates of the class of '82, but to the graduates of '83 
and '84. 

['78] 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

A Voice: Never mind them. 

Toast-master: And to the non-graduates. These all to- 
gether constitute the Greater '82. [Applause and cries of 
"Good!"] I use the word advisedly, because it is a fact 
that, through the cultivation of the class spirit, we have 
attracted to ourselves a number of men who, like the tail 
of a comet, may have dropped behind, but you know the 
most brilliant part of a comet comes trailing after. We 
have added such a number of men who feel a loyalty to 
those numerals '82 that the number who respond to any 
call of '82 is actually larger to-day than when we graduated, 
and if that does n't mean a "Greater '82," I don't know 
what does. [Applause and cries of "Good!" Now what 
is it that makes us greater, or has produced that result? 

A Voice: Lyman and Parsons. 

Another Voice: Johnnie Peters, partly. 

Toast-master: Parsons has not only made '82 greater, 
but he will make subsequent classes greater. [Applause.] 

Now we have certain traits as a class, as we have as in- 
dividuals. I was very much interested to hear what Presi- 
dent Hadley had to say, and hung upon his lips to hear what 
he had to say to us about ourselves; but he only said we had 
"an atmosphere." 

A Voice: Don't get sore. 

Toast-master: I think we really have an atmosphere, but 
what we most need now is air. 

A Voice: We have hot air. 

Toast-master: He did not touch upon the qualities of '82 
at all, although we were one of the most loyal classes that 
ever graduated from Yale. [Applause and cries of "Hear, 
hear!"] We are homogeneous — 

A Voice: We are what? 

Toast-master: Homogeneous — not H-o-m-e-r, but h-o-m-o- 
geneous. There are no lines of cleavage in this class, so- 
cial, society, financial, or any other. [Applause.] 

[79] 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

I think I may say one or two words in regard to the class 
without being egotistical, because I do not attribute anything 
to myself. We are democratic, we are all alike, we are all 
'82 men, and we must go on and show to the college, as we 
have, I think, during the last few days, that we are not only 
a unit as a class, but that we are a nucleus, or we are some- 
thing from which can emanate influences which will be of 
use to the college. [Applause.] The highest type of ser- 
vice is work, and that, I think, we have given to Yale and 
propose to keep on giving; but, more than that, we are will- 
ing to make sacrifices. I believe that this class is not a very 
rich class as things are rich in these days of opulence, but 
to-day an announcement was made, was it not? at the alumni 
meeting, of the fact that, through, I will not say the efforts 
of our finance committee, headed by Archie Welch, but 
through that channel, we have raised a munificent sum 
to give to Yale — eighteen thousand dollars, which was far 
more than we thought could be raised. And I think that 
thanks are due to the committee, and to the chairman of the 
committee especially, for affording a way so tactfully and 
diplomatically for the class to express its intentions and de~ 
sire to help the college. 

The college is greatly in need of money, as you know. 
We have got through our begging (and this is not leading 
up to any begging at all), but the members of the faculty, 
as you know, live on mere pittances. I think that a member 
of the faculty on receiving his salary check must feel some- 
what as the Irishman felt who came home on pay-day, 
and his wife said: "Pat, where is the money this week?" 
And Pat said: "Faith, you are behind the times; have n't 
you read about microbes getting on money? I would really 
hate to give you the money that I got, for fear there might be 
microbes on it." "Ah!" Bridget replied, "come off, Pat: 
no microbes could get on your wages." [Laughter.] I 
think the same thing might be said of a professor's salary,

THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

and that is generally appreciated, and it has been more par- 
ticularly appreciated by a member of our class. I wish now 
to say, somewhat under the protest of the person who is re- 
sponsible for this announcement that I am about to make, that 
there has been a gift by a member of our class, in addition 
to the eighteen thousand dollars already given, of twenty- 
five thousand dollars [tremendous applause and cheers] to 
help the faculty eke out their subsistence and make the two 
ends meet. [Renewed applause.] Now this gift comes 
from one of the most modest men of the class. It is Charlie 
Stillman. [Loud applause and cries of " 'Rah, 'rah, 'rah!" 
etc., and cries of "Stillman, speech!"] 

Stillman: Fellows, I had a long talk with Andy Phillips 
several years ago, and realized the position he has been in, 
devoting his whole life to the work, as he has been, and 
it has been the same way with the whole university. And 
I appreciate, more than anything else, that these men are 
working all their lives on such a small salary, and it was 
with great pleasure that I was able to give a part to this 
fund. [Applause.] 

Toast-master: Boys, as an echo of your applause, I say 
that is a splendid gift. 

I might talk at length about the class and about the col- 
lege, but this is a hot evening, and we have some good talks 
in store. I am just going to cut out some of the common- 
places, and I am going to try and put you back into the 
past, not where you belong, perhaps, but you know we live 
terribly in the present. We come up here to escape from 
ourselves, we come up here and we find that we are still 
living in the present. We feel the new conditions (and 
they are new and they are better), but they are not quite 
what we loved, because they are not the old conditions. 
Now, to-night, with the aid of a little artifice, I am going 
to try to bring you back into that condition of mind which 
will make you appreciate what it is to be a Yale man and 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 



what it is to be an '82 man, and you cannot appreciate 
that any more than by a revival of the conditions which 
surrounded us, and I do not mean classroom conditions 
[laughter], when you were in college. 

Now I am going to have the lights put out, and I am 
going to have first a song. The lights will not be out con- 
tinuously, but I believe somewhat in an atmosphere that 
President Hadley referred to, and I am going to try and 
create an atmosphere, and I hope you will respond to it. 
Now we will have the lights put out, and the archangel and 
his angel choir will sing a verse of that good old song "The 
Moss-covered Bucket." 

[A screen, heretofore concealed, is let down, and a lantern 
slide thrown upon it.] 

The first picture you see on 
the screen is the face of our 
president, Howard Knapp. 
The man who has been twice 
elected president of our class 
has certainly been a credit to 
us, and he has been a credit 
to the college, and a credit to 
the community in which he 
lives. As undergraduate he 
served the class and college 
well on the football field, 
and not many fields. I find, 
are more exalted than that. 
After graduation he served 
the college by coming back 
and showing his loyalty 
by coaching many football 
teams, and he served the col- 
lege as a professor or tutor in the Law School. In Bridge- 
port we find that he is regarded as a man of public spirit, 

on 




Howard Knapp 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 



and he has, as a college man, organized the University 
Club of Bridgeport, which of course Yale dominates. That 
is merely another name for the Yale Club of Bridgeport. 
He is so prominent that he has been spoken of there as a 
candidate for mayor. Wherever he has been, whatever 
the sphere of activity he has thrown himself into, it has 
been heartily, and with results which are a credit to him, 
a credit to us, and a credit to the college. [Applause as 
Knapp's picture is seen, and the song "For He 's a Jolly 
Good Fellow."] 

I have these words from Howard: "My loyal love and 
greeting to the class of '82." These are the words that are 
fresh from his pen. You know that he is quite ill, but his 
thoughts are on us. 

Now I am going to ask that some one, and I suggest that 
Harry Piatt be the man, report to Howard the result of the 
election to-day, and the feeling that has been manifested by 
you men here to-night. 

Parsons: Mr. Chair- 
man, can't we rise once 
more and signify our al- 
legiance and our love to 
Howard Knapp? Let 's 
all rise in token of our 
allegiance and love. [All 
rise with the song, "Here 's 
to Howard Knapp, drink 
him down."] 

Toast-master : This gen- 
tleman needs no introduc- 
tion. In fact, if it were not 
for him we would not be 
here to-night. Let 's show 
a bit of loyalty to the old name by singing the old song 
"Here 's to Good Old Yale." 




Elihu Yale 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

This is the first Yale building. It is the house of the 
Rev. Samuel Russell at Branford, Connecticut, and, as I 
understand it, this is the house to which the ministers of 

Connecticut came 
and deposited the 
books which consti- 
tuted the nucleus of 
the Library, which 
already requires so 
many buildings to 
accommodate it as 
really to defy the 
ingenuity of archi- 
tects to keep up with 
its growth, if each 
addition is to be of 
a different style, which seems to be the present policy. 
It may interest you to know that our classmate Palmers

great-grandfather was one of the men who brought some 
books and deposited them there at that time. [Applause.] 
This may be termed the cradle of the "Yale spirit."

THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

A Voice (referring to the old well-sweep) : The well of 
the Yale spirit. 

Toast-master: Now we come down to comparatively 
modern times, the time when we came to New Haven. 
[Applause.] This view represents Temple Street, not as 
it is to-day, but as it was w r hen we first came here, and this 
is the street that is particularly noted as having at the end 
of it Moriarty's. [Applause.] It is somewhat as Phila- 
delphia is known as the place where Wanamaker's is. Mo- 
riarty's, the Temple Bar, w 7 e might call it, of America, but 
oh, Temple Bar ! oh, Mory's ! To think that we could come 
back here twenty-five years after, and, so far as I know, 
none has had sufficient interest to go down there. 




Hillhouse Avenue 

This you will all recognize as Hillhouse Avenue. These 
are not contemporaneous pictures, these are pictures that have 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

been dug up with some difficulty; and I want incidentally to 
say that Billings has been of great assistance in getting to- 
gether this collection. [Applause and cries of "Billings !"* 
This is Hillhouse Avenue as it was, and there is not so much 
change in its appearance as in the occupants of the houses at 
either side. Beyond the corner there, where we turned to 
the right under the leadership of Marshal Williams earlier 
this evening, is the house where we attended the senior re- 
ceptions of Prexy Porter, and Arthur Wright lived on the 
left, and you see the old Hillhouse place at the end, and that 
is now in the possession of the college. 




College Street 

Inadvertently we seem to be retracing the steps that we 
took this afternoon. We are coming backward from Hill- 
house Avenue into College Street, and of course you will see 
at once that it is not the College Street of to-day. Some 
of the familiar features are gone, but you see the fine old 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

State House at the right, immortalized as the background 
of one or more of our class groups which I will show you 
later if everything works all right. 




Chapel Street and "Beers' Crossing" 

This is Chapel Street and the old fence. [Applause.] 
I am afraid you won't understand the pictures unless I ex- 
plain them to you. There is the old fence, and there is 
"Beers' Crossing," where we used to go over and get "high 
rock and lime-juice." We used to stand around that fence 
there, waiting for some one of sufficient opulence to propose 
to go across. [Laughter.] 

[Campus with Old Brick Row.] [Tremendous cheers.] 
[Reproduction on page 89.] 

There you have the old campus as it never will be seen 
again, boys. I think we had better sing about the old brick 
row. We have a song that was introduced in the opera 

C873 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

of "Penikeese." Let 's have a verse of u The Old Brick 
Row." You see you have the fence there, too — the seat of 
learning. [Applause.] 

Douw: You said, Mr. Speaker, in describing Temple 
Street, that it was sad to think that no member of the class 
had visited Moriarty's. I was there yesterday afternoon 
and drank a Scotch high-ball. 

A Voice: What! Alone? 

[Song by the angel choir, "The Old Brick Row." 

THE OLD BRICK ROW 

These buildings old, this old brick row. 

In daylight seem in sorry plight ; 
But with what splendor do they glow, 

When touched by magic night ! 
A grand cathedral arch the elms 

Above the glist'ning campus weave, 
And music from the elfin realms 

Is ever heard at eve. 

Amid these leaf-embowered glades. 

The loyal breast with joy doth heave; 
While wandering 'neath these classic shades, 

At beauteous starry eve. 
The grandest marvel of design 

By daytime may the eye delight, 
But never, never can outshine 

The old brick row at night. 

Toast-master: We have heard the angel voices, and now 
"Facilis descensus Averno !"— Alumni Hall [referring to 
next view]. 

A Voice: That is no pipe dream either! 

A Voice: Where is the man to translate that? 

Toast-master: That is easily recognizable. Presently

That is introduced, 
boys, because they 
talk of demolishing 
that fine old speci-

I cannot understand 
the vandalism which 
is going to do away 
with that old build- 
ing and the old Li-

A Voice: Look at Badger's bald head with Greek on it. 

[Badger's head was in the w T ay 

of the picture.] 

Toast-master: When Greek 

meets Yankee, the Greek has the 

advantage. I said we would pass 

within, but I am not sure we 

would all pass within. I want to 

call your attention to one of the 

most realistic features of this 

production, and that is that it 

shows Badger's head with the 

Greek on the outside of it.

THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

Toast-master: That was the office of the old presidents, 
and that is where that famous old society He Boule got a 
new lease of life. Barclay Johnson and I went in there to 




Old Treasury Building 

see Prexy Porter. Barclay was the spokesman, and I stood 
In the doorway to cut oil retreat, and Barclay said: "Mr. 
President, we want to continue this excellent debating society 
which the class of '81 has conducted so admirably." And 
Prexy asked us if it was a debating society, and we said yes 
— through our spokesman. And that was really why the 
fate of He Boule was stayed for several years. It hung 
upon that answer.

This picture signifies something to old Yale men. It has 
the old ivies on it, and when we come back here, certainly 
by our next anniversary, it won't be here. We will never 
see that building again, boys, and I hope you will take a 
good look at it. They are going to remove that, too. 




Old Gymnasium 

OH 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

I will say, for the enlightenment of those men who took 
so much interest in that Greek examination paper, that that 
is the old gym. If you have seen the new gym, it affords 
by contrast a pretty good gauge or measure, certainly, of 
physical development, or I might say of the opportunities 
for physical development. 

A Voice: They turned out some pretty good teams there. 

Toast-master : It all looks small now, but that seemed 
like an awfully long track after you had been around it 
twenty or twenty-live times. 




Hamilton Park 



There is old Hamilton Park, and I have a notion that 
that is an '82 crowd out there. Perhaps some of you can 
recognize it. 

A Voice: Sam Hopkins is on first base.

est achievements; that is, I am speaking now from the 
standpoint of the athlete. [Laughter.]

a three-legged foot

Badger: That is Darling and myself, and "But" Wood-

Freshman Baseball Nine of '82 



Toast-master: You don't need to have me tell you whose 
picture that is. That was the old freshman ball nine. 

Badger: We got the fence two weeks earlier than any

THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 



class ever got it. We got the fence the twenty-sixth day of 
April, 1879 — two weeks earlier than any class ever had the 
fence before. 

Toast-master: That nine beat the Harvard freshmen 19 
to 11 and 6 to 5, and judging from to-day's result I think 
they could have beaten this year's Harvard 'varsity. Hut 
that 's nothing. [Applause.] 

Badger: Up in Cambridge we beat them two games, 
the first time the Harvard freshmen were ever licked on 
their own grounds, and Harry Piatt was the man that did 
the trick with a left-hand stop.

'Varsity Football Team of '78 

There is what is known as the first Walter Camp team, 
and it is historic to-day, and it must be interesting to any- 
body who was on it, and to the class, to know that it really 
goes back to the beginning of modern football. That is the 
fifteen team, and we had but one fifteen after that. That 
team was interesting to us in our day because it had five 
freshmen on it, four from our class and one from Sheft. 
Five freshmen played in the game up at Boston with Har- 
vard. It was won by Yale with one goal, due to an extraor- 
dinary kick by Thompson from the middle of the field. He 

IT 95 3 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

hit the ball with the side of his foot. He was not a drop- 
kicker; he was a rush. 

Badger: May I say a word about that? Six men from 
Adams Academy played in the game that he tells you about; 
live were on the Harvard team, and myself on Yale. 

[Badger names the players: Camp, Watson, Peters, 
Nixon, Moorhouse, Eaton, Lyman, Harding, Fuller, Bad- 
ger, and others.] 

Bailey: Let *s have one drink to Chummie Eaton, as 
loval a Yale bov as ever lived, and he would be here now 
if he could. 

[Sophomore fence.] [For reproduction see page 2.] 

Toast-master: That is the sophomore fence, which, as 
Walter said, we got prematurely through the efforts of him- 
self, others ably assisting. That is the fence that I think 
Asa French, if he were here, would say that he had some 
part in getting by his oratory. That was the beginning of 
Asa's oratorical career, as I remember it, which we ex- 
pected would culminate to-night in his response to a toast, 
but he has been called away, greatly to our regret. I don't 
know whether you can recognize the men in that group. 





Murray Hale 

Now we have two old familiar characters, Murray the 
hackman and Hale the postman. I can't unde -stand this 

C96] 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

controversy about having a statue of Hale on the campus. 
[Applause and laughter.] I certainly think Hale ought to 
have one, and Murray, too. 





Professor Wright 



Professor Phillips 



There are Andy and Baldie as they were, two fine charac- 
ters, the students' friends, conscientious instructors; and the 
warmth of feeling that was displayed when they came 
around to see us the other night I think is sufficient apology 
for my selecting those two men to represent the old faculty. 
[Applause.] 

I must pause a minute to tell you a story that is going 
around New Haven that hinges on Professor Wright. There 
is a famous English lawyer, Sir John Pollock, who came over 
to this country a short time ago. He came to New Haven, 
and a dinner was given to him by one of the prominent men 
here. The leaders of the faculty and other prominent citi- 
zens were invited to meet him. Shortly after the dinner 
began, Sir John Pollock's head began to nod, and in a short 
time his chin was on his chest, his eyelids were drooping; he 
was snoring and fast asleep. The other guests were aghast, 
but, with true New England politeness, they went right on 

C97] 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

with their conversation and paid no heed to him whatever. 
In a short time Sir John woke up and resumed his conversa- 
tion with his neighbors. In due course the party went out and 
had their cigars, etc. (it was a stag party), and Sir John 
took his leave rather early, and his host accompanied him 
to the door. On his return he was plied immediately with 
questions as to whether Sir John apologized, because there 
was a general feeling that his deportment was, to say the 
least, quite an innovation, if not a breach of international 
comity. "Well," the host said, "he did n't exactly apolo- 
gize, but, just as he was going out of the door, he said: 'I 
am stopping, you know, with Dean Wright, and they rise 
very early at the dean's.' " [Laughter.] 




'Varsity Football Team of '79 

Now we are passing on chronologically, you realize. 
There is the football team of the next year. That is the 
last "fifteen." That team had an honorable record, but 
they were not champions, as I recollect it. 

[98:

Toast-master: Here is the old building at the left where 
Professor Arthur Wright held forth. As he said the other 
night, the incandescent lamp which he exhibited to us he 
believed to be the first incandescent lamp that was ever 
exhibited or lighted in Connecticut. I remembered that fact; 
but I want to say (which I did not say to him) that I re- 
membered also the fact that Professor Wright said that the 
electric light would, no doubt, play a very important part in 
outdoor illumination, but it would probably never be used 
for interior illumination [laughter], showing the short- 
sightedness of even the most enlightened.

Those were two of the grand old men. You know the after 
career of Professor Phelps as Minister to England, and 
Professor Dana, of course, is also gone. 




President Porter 

[Long-continued applause and cheers.] 

President Porter's characteristics have been splendidly 
portrayed in some verses by Rogers of '83, and I will read 
you just a verse or two of his tribute : 

Alike all loved him: careful student, drone, 

Scapegrace or steady man ; all knew 
His mild reproof was for their help alone, 

And his reproofs were few. 
No man remembers him to have his heart 
Tingle with some keen, unforgotten smart. 

No gift of comeliness had he, scant grace 

Of bearing, little pride of mien — 
He had the rugged old-time Roundhead face, 

Severe and yet serene ; 
But, through those keen and steadfast eyes of blue 
The soul shone fearless, modest, strong, and true.

with variable degrees of pleasure, probably.

There is the ball nine, the 'varsity of senior year. They 
were the champions. That is one of the nines that used to 
beat the professionals. That was a great team, boys. If 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

I am not mistaken, that was the year that Harry Piatt led 
the batting list of all the intercollegiate nines; is that so, 
Harry? 

Piatt: No, it is not so. [He led the fielding in '81.] 

Badger: I want to tell you one thing. We saw the ball 
game played to-day. When Harry Piatt played on that 
ball team, he said: "Badger, I can't do the trick." I said: 
u Yes, you must, Harry." He said: "Then I will try." He 
showed me his arm. From the shoulder down to his wrist 
it was absolutely black and blue. Harry Piatt played the 
game out for old Yale and '82, and we won out. [Ap- 
plause.] May I say one thing more? You remember to-day 
that the first baseman jumped up in the air and caught the 
ball, and the man running was not out. I said to Harry: 
"I tell you, Harry, if that had been Sam Hopkins, he would 
have lengthened out." [Laughter.] 

Parsons: Boys, three times three for Harry Piatt. 

Toast-master: Badger's allusion to Sam Hopkins re- 
minds me of some quotation, I don't know whom it is from, 
but it runs to the effect that "Their endowments make these 
base men great." [Loud laughter.] 

['82 trophies.] [Reproduction on opposite page.] 

In lieu of showing all the teams in whose honors '82 
shared, I will just show in this picture a few of our trophies. 
These are the trophies of senior year. It is impossible to 
show all on a screen only about five, by six feet. 

Badger (pointing) : That is the one "Tufa" Darling 
and I won in the three-legged race. I have it in my room 
now. 

Toast-master: Fellows, we do not look upon athletics as 
the chief thing in college life, but we think they have a good 
deal to do with the development of the Yale spirit. I think 
that is about the last of the athletic pictures, and now sup- 
pose we give three times three cheers for the athletes of 
Yale of our time.

Here is the graduation group of our class, taken at the

I should like to have the lights turned up, and if you will 
turn to the songs of '82, you will find the Parting Ode there. 
Let us sing the Parting Ode, because that was the breaking 
up, that was the end of the first era of '82. 

PARTING ODE 

BY J. E. WHITNEY 

Swift our college days have passed, 

Like a vision fleeting, 
Filled with joys too bright to last, 

Down the years retreating ; 
And the ever earnest call 

Of the years advancing, 
Speaking to us one and all, 

Breaks the dream entrancing. 

While we swell the parting strain, 

Be it softly spoken, 
We shall never meet again 

In a band unbroken. 
But though severed far and wide, 

With new scenes delighted, 
Time nor tide can e'er divide 

Hearts at Yale united.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

And whatever may ensue, 

Fortune less or greater. 
We will live for Eighty-two, 

And for Alma Mater. 
Then before the last farewell 

Let us pledge to cherish 
In our hearts their happy spell 

Till remembrance perish. 




Barclay Johnson 



Ernest Whitney 



Toast-master : Boys, "lest we forget,'' here are two of the 
men who were very prominent in our college life, and would 
have been prominent in after life, had their lives been pre- 
served. I reproduce this because Barclay, as you know, 
was our valedictorian, a lovable fellow, and Whitney was 
our class poet, a lovable fellow. They stand for that large 
number who have gone already. Wentworth was the first. 
Barnes, though not in our class at the time, followed quickly. 

OS] 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

Shortly after we were graduated, Cuyler went over to the 
beyond, and then, one after another, some of our best men 
went. Now let us not forget that all these men were an 
important element in our class, and simply because they 
have gone ahead, let us not fail to cherish their memories. 
Let us stand and drink a toast to the dead, a silent toast. 

Now, while we are standing, I want you to sing the Ivy 
Ode, which Whitney composed. The air is "Lorelei." 

IVY ODE 

O Ivy newly starting 

In tenderness and grace, 
Our final clasp at parting 

Above thy resting place 
Shall hallow thee forever, 

While memory is true 
To ties that now we sever 

Around dear 'Eighty-two. 

May Spring give thee the vigor 

To flourish in thy seat, 
Despite the Winter's rigor, 

And Summer's scorching heat; 
May rains and sunbeams gentle 

Like blessings on thee fall, 
Until thy beauties mantle 

The cold and naked wall. 

O lend us inspiration 

To live as thou wilt live, 
Whatever be our station, 

To ever nobly strive 
With fairest deeds of duty, 

Though fond ambition fail, 
To deck with fadeless beauty 

The name of dear old Yale.

[Twentieth reunion group.] [Reproduction on page 51.] 

Now we come down almost to the present. We have 

reached the end of our college reminiscences. This is the 

'82 group, with which most of you are familiar, and I think 

I need not delay with it, the twentieth anniversary group. 





Tutor Hadlev 



President Hadlev 



Those show Hadley as he was in our time, and as he was 

a short time ago. Let 's have 
three times three for the tutor 
and for the President. [Three 
times three for President 
Hadlev.] 

I am introducing Holland 
now a little out of place, be- 
cause he is unable to be here 
to respond to the toast as 
billed. I am sure he is most 
regretful himself. That is 
Ted Holland in his most re- 
cent photograph. He sent on 




Ted Holland 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 



some very interesting lines which will be read later. Ted is 
out in Denver, and only the call of duty prevented his being 
here. I have had correspondence with him, and Billie has, 
and he was keen to get here, and it was only a sense of 
duty that kept him away. 

That is Senator Kittredge 
of South Dakota as he is. 
He was unable to be here 
because, as I understand it, 
his continuing to be Senator 
hinged upon his remaining 
out West and conducting a 
vigorous campaign. I want 
to say, as you perhaps know, 
he is known as the silent Sen- 
ator, and he certainly is a 
wonderfully modest man. I 
had great difficulty in even 
getting a picture of him. I 
had men searching the pho- 
tograph galleries of Wash- 
ington, and all they could 
find was a negative. I don't 
know whether that indicates that he is so modest as not to 
have his picture taken, or whether they are in such demand 
that the supply is exhausted. Kit, as you know, has been a 
conspicuous figure in Washington, and his reputation rests 
largely upon his vigorous fight, first, for the Panama Canal, 
and, secondarily, for having the canal built on a level. It 
seems that they were not willing to have the canal built "on 
the level," so that I think that scores a point for our mem- 
ber. We little thought that Kit would become the biggest 
dig of the class. [Applause and three times three for the 
Senator.]

That is Russell Yale O'Hanlon, although I think at the 
time the picture was taken it was Russell Yale Hanlon, 
which reminds me of the story of a fellow by the name of 
Hooley who came over from Ireland. He said: "When I 
first went to work, I was called Pat, and pretty soon they 
began to call me Patrick Hooley. I became foreman of our 
job, and they called me Mr. Hooley. When I became alder- 
man they called me the Honorable Mr. Hooley, and one 
day I was walking up Fifth Avenue with my wife, and I 
went into one of the churches, and started to walk up the 
aisle, when all the people got up and began to sing 'Hooley, 
Hooley, Hooley!' ' [Laughter.] There is the boy, and 
there is the man. That picture was taken in the Sierras, 
where he was an engineer. He was a self-educated engi- 
neer. I gather from his history that O'Hanlon was unable 
to afford himself a college education, so he took a course 
in the Scranton Correspondence School and made himself 

C"2] 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 



an engineer, and has gone on very successfully, up step by 
step, and at the present time he is in Korea in connection 
with the Oriental Randolph Exploration Company, or some- 
thing of the sort. I have a notion that it is one that I Iarry 
Piatt may know something about, but I am not sure. 

Piatt: Mr. Toast-master, I propose three times three for 
the Class Boy. 

Toast-master: When the questions were sent out by Dill- 
ingham in preparation for our record, I was astonished at 
the thoroughness of them. It seemed to me that he had pro- 
vided for everything excepting for what an X-ray picture 
would show, for he had asked all kinds of questions con- 
ceivable. He had even asked you to fill in statistics in regard 
to your grandchildren! I did n't know whether that was in 
anticipation of the fact that the records might be some time 
in coming out [derisive laughter], judging from past ex- 
perience (due, of course, not to any remissness on the part 
of the publication committee, but to the great difficulty of 
getting replies quickly). In looking over the twentieth 
reunion record, I noticed that Dil- 
lingham, in his preface, spoke of 
the short-Qommgs of the record. It 
seemed to me that a more proper 
term would have been the long- 
comings of the record. [Laugh- 
ter.] Now, by a sagacity which is 
very remarkable, they have pro- 
vided for things just as they are, 
and others of the class have not 
been idle either. I don't know 
whether to commend most those 
who prepared the questions as to 
who your grandchildren were, or 
those who were at work producing grandchildren, because, 
boys of '82, that is your first grandchild! [Applause.] I

The Class Grandchild 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 



don't know his, her, or its exact name, but I know that it is 
the grandchild of Chummie Eaton. [Loud applause and 
three times three for our grandchild.] It is a fact, and the 
baby is only a few days old, less than two weeks, I think, and 
it is the child of Chummie EJaton's daughter, and but for 
that event Chummie would be with us to-night. 

Allen: I did n't know it affected the grandfathers that 

way, Chester. [Laughter.] 
Toast-master : This is 
an opportune time, before 
proceeding to expatiate on 
this present picture before 
us, to allude to a message 
that I have here, two mes- 
sages in fact, if I can find 
them. You know that we 
expected Brewster here, 
and you know what an 
earnest, enthusiastic fel- 
low he is, and he set his 
heart on coming, but there 
was an event anticipated 
in his family which made 
it very uncertain as to 
whether he would come or not. I learned this from a doc- 
tor who has recently arrived from Salt Lake City, and we 
also have a telegram from him. You know Brewster was a 
good deal of a wit, but I think the best joke that he ever 
perpetrated is comprised in this despatch from him, which 
reads: "I must abandon trip; little William will not hurry." 
[Laughter.] 

Shortly before I came over here this evening, I received 

this despatch: "William came to-night, and yells for '82." 

[Applause and three times three for little William Brewster.] 

You remember, those of you who were here two years

ago at the ball game, how the result hung in the balance, 
and the class boy of '80, the class that was holding its twen- 
ty-fifth anniversary, stepped up to the bat, hit the ball, and 
made a home run, and that was accounted the most delight- 
ful event of the anniversary of the class of '8o. Now this 
is anticipating a little, but I want to introduce to you now 
the son of Rice, Welles Kennon Rice, who is a member of 
the university crew, and will surely do creditable work next 
Thursday, and it would certainly be a great satisfaction to 
us if we could see him, and the other seven men who will 
probably help him some, carry the boat over the line ahead 
of Harvard. [Loud applause and three times three for 
young Rice.] 

Rice: Billie kindly gave me a badge for the boy, which 
I have sent down to him, and 
if they win, the '82 badge will 
go over the line first. [Ap- 
plause.] The boy sent his 
thanks to the class for it. 

Toast-master : I want to 
bring in the man on whom 
more eyes in this country are 
fixed than perhaps on anybody 
else, excepting the President. 
And we hope some day (I 
think a great many of us do, 
but I don't want to make any 
political issue at all) that he 
will be the successor of Presi- 
dent Roosevelt, and those of 
us who can do so conscien- 
tiously will support him and • Biir Taft 
will welcome seeing such a 

sterling, typical, representative Yale man as Bill I aft suc- 
ceed to the Presidency. [Applause.] It reminds me of a 

C"5n 




HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 



little story that I heard about him. He was having his 
shoes shined on a public stand, and he was being very much 
annoyed by newspaper boys trying to sell him papers. A 
friend waiting for him finally said to the boys: ''There is 
no use asking that man to buy, or talking to that man; he is 
deaf, he can't hear what you say." "Gee whiz!" said the 
bow "is that so? He 's a fat son-of-a-gun, ain't he?" 

[Laughter.] 

That is "Ting." I sup- 
pose you are more or less 
familiar with his career, and 
with the fact that he has 
risen to high rank in China, 
and has had a very honora- 
ble career since he left col- 
lege. For twenty years, I 
think, he was confidential 
secretary and adviser of Li 
Hung Chang, who is looked 
upon by all Chinese and the 
world at large as being the 
greatest Chinese statesman 
of our day, and Sir Chen- 
tung Liang Cheng, the pres- 
ent Chinese Minister, said 
that very much of the credit 
that had been given to Chang for broad views was due, 
no doubt, to the counsel and advice of his confidential ad- 
viser and secretary, our old friend "Ting." "Ting," as 
you probably know, is to succeed the present Chinese Min- 
ister, Sir Chentung, and we hoped to have him here to- 
night, but he will not come to this country for a month or 
two. After being secretary of Chang, he was made taotai 
of Tientsin, and that is a very high position and office, and 
a very remunerative one. I am told that his salary was 




^ing" as an Undergraduate 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

three hundred thousand dollars a year, but that, in a spirit 
of retrenchment, they had cut the salary down to one hun- 
dred and fifty thousand dollars; still, as Sam I [opkins very 
aptly said, "every day counts when you are getting a salarv 
of one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year." [Laugh- 
ter and applause.] 

Welch: I want to say here is a telegram that came from 
"Ting" by which some of that salary goes into the '82 fund. 
[Three times three for "Ting."] 




"Ting" Liang 

Toast-master: In the center you see "Ting" as he is now 
or w r as quite recently; the center dignitary is "Ting," and 
is n't it quite interesting to see the changes in the man? 
"Ting" was w r ith us about three years, but during a revolu- 
tion in the government he w r as recalled. It was not within 
the range of possibilities for him to complete his course and 
take his degree. But I am authorized to state to the mem- 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

bers of the class only that the faculty have recommended 
that he receive the degree of A.B., with enrolment in the 
class as of '82, and the corporation will confirm it to-mor- 
row, and the announcement will be duly made. [Applause.]

Toast-master: The class has achieved honor in almost 
every sphere of activity that I can think of, but it seems 
as though in the medical profession we had been quite pre- 
eminent. In various cities East and West we have men w T ho 
stand high in the medical profession. Here is the man who, 
as you know, was one of the quiet workers in college, who

THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

has gone steadily forward, who has advanced not only by 
reason of his accomplishments, but by reason of his per- 
sonal character— such an 
important element in a suc- 
cessful professional man, 
particularly in medicine. 
That preeminence which 
he enjoys in Xew York and 
in the country has received 
the recognition of all his 
confreres in the profes- 
sion. They have united, 
some of the most eminent 
physicians have united, in 
seeking for him some rec- 
ognition from his Alma 
Mater, and I have the 
pleasure of announcing (I 
think this is news to almost 
all of you), and this is 

. Cragin 

anticipating another an- 
nouncement of to-morrow T , that Cragin will receive the de- 
gree of M.A. [Applause.] I wish I could quote to you 
some of the high testimonials which it was my privilege to 
read from some of the most eminent men in the country 
in regard to his attainments. To be slightly "levitious" 
—to use the word he coined in classroom — I saw a list 
of the works that he has contributed to the science of medi- 
cine and surgery, and he has written whole volumes on sub- 
jects which it makes me blush to even think about. [Laugh- 
ter.] I am sure that even the titles must be excluded from 
our class record, or the records will be excluded from the 
mails. Let 's give three times three cheers for Cragin, one 
of the most eminent men of the class. 

C»93 




HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

I have been really anticipating, and I must go back a bit 
to bring me down to the immediate present, and the next 
view will conclude the series. 

[Class picture taken 2 P.M., June 25, 1907.] [Repro- 
duction on page 54.] 

This is the view taken of us this afternoon at the Library, 
and it is an extraordinarily good view, I think. I don't think 
it is necessary for any one to point out who they are. 
[Laughter and applause.] 

Now I think a song would be in order. That is the end 
of the pictures. I hope I am not protracting the program 
too much. 

We now are down to the toasts, and we are going to ask 
one man to work overtime to-night, as he has already made 
one speech to-day. This is a man who, through accident of 
birth, occupied the first position in the class at the beginning 
of our course. His name began with A, and was first on the 
list when the class was divided alphabetically; but, overcom- 
ing or rather supplementing the advantages of birth, he 
very nearly held the position of supremacy, only being sur- 
passed by our dear valedictorian Barclay. The man whom 
I have in mind has devoted himself to the teaching of 
young men, and another accident has placed him where 
his influence is not in the direction of producing men for 
Yale, but he is doing great work in connection with a 
sister university. He, with President Harper, went to Chi- 
cago in 1890, I think, or 1892, and organized Chicago 
University, which has become so great an institution. This 
man stands as one of the representatives of a large element 
of our class who have devoted themselves to pedagogic 
work; no less than fourteen of them are so occupied, exem- 
plifying the saying, which is very common in regard to Yale, 
that she is the "teacher of teachers." It is in recognition of 
that fact that we are serving to-night that beverage which 
must be to the pedagogues as ambrosia was to the gods and 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

demigods of the past— Teachers' Scotch. Had we known 
that Scotch whisky was the beverage of the teachers, I am 
sure more of us might have followed that line. [Laughter 
and applause.] I will now ask Professor Frank Frost Ab- 
bott to respond to the toast "Lessons." Abbott, you may 
recite. 

Abbott: Mr. Toast-master and Fellows: You have 
heard enough from me already. I am not really responsible 
for this second appearance to-day, and I want you to charge 
it up to the committee, to which we are charging up every- 
thing, of course, to-night. I have no speech to make, but 
now that I am on my feet, there are two things that I want 
to say. One is that I shall always remember that noble 
army of martyrs that I looked down on from the platform 
in Alumni Hall this morning during those two sweltering 
hours of oratory. When there were easy chairs and cooling 
drinks in the class tent, it was one of the most touching illus- 
trations of class loyalty that I have ever had the good for- 
tune to witness, to see those heroic souls sit and wait for the 
class of '82 to be called upon, and it will be a very pleasant 
thing to remember in the future. [Applause.] 

The other thing that I want to say (because I am not 
going to take the time of the others who are to follow, and 
whom you want to hear more than you want to hear me) — 
the other thing that I want to say is suggested by the flatter- 
ing remarks, unnecessarily flattering remarks, which the 
toast-master made in introducing me. After hearing them, 
I feel that perhaps I ought to say a word in excuse of my 
apparent falling from grace in the choice of a profession. 
Many of us did not have the pleasantest impressions in all 
cases of the man behind the desk twenty-five years ago. 
[Laughter.] But Fate has put me there for the last twenty 
years or more ; yet there are extenuating circumstances which 
I think even such a rigid jurist as our learned classmate 
from Waterbury, for example, or my distinguished legal 

00 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

friend here at the right would regard as lessening the hein- 
ousness of the offense. For instance (this is personal, be- 
cause this is a family party to-night), I have tried to take 
our soft-spoken clergyman friend of freshman year, whose 
memory is still green with some of us, as a warning, not as 
an example. [Applause.] 

I have also tried to put myself in the place of the man on 
the bench. I have remembered that list of fine fellows, 
which runs from J. Allen, M. Allen, Atterbury, Badger, 
Bailey, to Wells, Wight, Williams, and Wright. I try to 
remember that what happens in the classroom does n't 
count. It was our life together outside the classroom that 
did count, and I think we have all felt here this week, more 
perhaps than we even felt in college, that the coming to 
know one hundred and fifty or more fine fellows, in fair 
weather and in foul, is the thing that is really worth while. 
When you and I have happened to meet during the last 
five, ten, fifteen, or twenty years, and during this last week, 
when we have talked over things together, we have not 
talked about geometry or political economy, or even about 
that most fascinating subject of Latin, but we have talked 
of the little things that happened to us together. Not that 
these small happenings were in themselves important; they 
were not tragic; they were not so very funny, either, but 
they were significant to us because they brought up the old 
days, because they were a part of our life here together. 
So the first thing we think of in these reunions is not, it 
seems to me, what men in the class have done in the last 
twenty-five years, for we knew they would do things worth 
doing in the world, but it is what they were as men twenty- 
five years ago, what they are as men to-day. [Applause.] 
Of course we are proud of their achievements. When peo- 
ple talk, for instance, about the relations between the far 
East and America, we think of one of the members of our 
class who has had and still has so distinguished a part in 

C I22 3 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

directing them, as the toast-master said a few minutes ago. 
When any one speaks of the Panama Canal, we call to mind 
another member of our class who has laid broad and deep 
the legal foundations of that enterprise. Still other '82 
men are at the top of their professions in the law, in medi- 
cine, in education; yet it is not thai that we think of. We 
knew they could do these things. It is what they were and 
what they are as men which appeals to us. [Applause.] 

There is only one other thing I want to say before giving 
way to the eloquence which is to follow, a thing which has 
come on me very strongly during this past week, to which 
Chester has already referred — the fact that our class 
has had no clique, no factions, that it has been a unit; 
that, from the night before entering, when we locked arms 
on the old Grammar School lot in the face of a common 
enemy, up to the day when we marched together onto the 
platform at Center Church, we have faced the same music, 
we have been one; and that spirit of solidarity, which I 
believe we may claim is a peculiar characteristic of the class 
of '82, is one of the pleasantest memories and one of the 
finest recollections that I, at least (and I think the same is 
true of all of us) , will carry away from this week of reunion 
here. [Prolonged applause.] 

Toast-master : Scanning — we were wont to look with 
aversion, I think, upon the task of scanning when we were in 
college; but it is one thing to have to scan, and another thing 
to have the scanning done for you. Holland has sent on some 
poetical lines which I am going to ask another member of 
the class to read. There is a saying that next praiseworthy 
to the man who creates a great expression is he who first 
quotes it. I think that may be slightly changed so as to 
apply to the work of the one who will now act as the voice 
of Holland. I will ask Palmer to read Holland's message 
to the class. 

Palmer: When Lyman asked me to read these lines, he 

c i2 3n 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE *82 

asked me to read them as my own. I thought I was going 
to grasp a halo of glory, but he has not only put Holland's 
name on the program, but shown you his picture, so there is 
nothing in it for me at all. But I will proceed: 



When the fun is at its height 
In the middle of the night, 

Pause, and think 
Of the classmates far away, 
And let some good fellow say, 
"Take a drink!"

TO HIS CLASSMATES OF

IN BEHALF OF ANY UNFORTUNATE WHO, LIKE HIMSELF, MIGHT BE CALLED 

"THE MAN WHO COULD N'T COME" 

There 's a rumor borne by the evening breeze 

Which has reached 'way out to me. 
It started, they say, in the old elm-trees 

In a city by the sea — 
In a city celebrated for 

Its university. 

It has found its way over hill and dale, 

Over mountain and river and plain, 
To the ramparts high that cut the sky 

Where the Rockies rise amain 
And peaks glow bright in the sunset light 

Like domes of a gilded fane. 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

The seismographs, the world around, 
Are recording the earthquake shocks, 

And a tidal wave has swept the land 
From Bridgeport to Windsor Locks, 

While here — two thousand miles away — 
I feel the trembler's knocks. 

Then tell me, ye elements convulsed ! 

Tell me, thou waning moon ! 
What mean these fearsome portents? 

Say ! Does the end of the world come soon ? 
And the earth and air and sky reply : 
" 'T is the twenty-fifth of June!" 

Ah ! Now I see why these things be ; 

And I know r , full well, 't is true 
That the ivied walls where the sparrow- calls 

Are held by a motley crew ; 
For to-night 's the night that is owned outright 

By the class of eighty-two. 

Gathered around the festive board, 

They come from over the land 
To feel the joy of the college boy 

And the grasp of a comrade's hand, 
Ere the hour-glass of the good old class 

Has emptied its load of sand. 

No doubt the place has greatly changed — 
More than some of us can know r — 

Since we sat in the shade the elm-trees made 
Five and twenty years ago ; 

And modern halls now rear their walls 
Where stood the old brick row. 

The college fence, where we loved to sit 
And see the girls trip by, 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

Where jest and song, when days grew long, 

Made the happy hours fly, 
Has passed away like a vanished day, 

To live but in memory. 

Doubtless the songs we used to sing 

Are old-fashioned and out of date 
And would be "2, 3," if they reached the ears 

Of the undergraduate. 
For is n't it strange how all things change? 

Well, cheer up! Such is Fate! 

But I fancy the years have left their mark 

On other than fence and wall, 
And some will come with whitened locks, 

And some with no locks at all ; 
And many who seem in the summer of life, 

But more in the early fall. 

Time will have left his seal on all 

In some conspicuous way. 
The trousers that most of us used to wear 

Will never meet to-day; 
There will be a general look, I fear, 

Of October instead of May. 

The telltale lines about the mouth, 

The touch of gray in the hair, 
Will indicate we are headed "south," 

While a crow's-foot, here and there, 
Will show necessity, alas ! 

For general repair. 

But here we are for what we are 

In several degree : 
The doctor, lawyer, merchant, chief, 

The Reverend D.D. 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

From here, from there, from everywhere— 
A noble sight to see ! 



The man who entered politics 

And glories in the strife; 
The man who does not care to "mix," 

But leads "the simple life" ; 
The banker and the poet, 

The surgeon with his knife. 

You 've had your dinners table d'hote, 
You 've heard that stirring call, 

The baccalaureate address 
By Prex in Woolsey Hall, 

Had luncheon at the Country Club, 
And, then, that is n't all. 

You 've eaten clams and chicken 

Where the clams and chicks abound, 

To wit, at the Momauguin, 

Which is by Long Island Sound ; 

You 've seen the great Yale-Harvard game. 
In fact, you 've looked around. 

But when I read the "program" 
(With one m, sir, s'il vous plait!) 

I seem to miss the good old names 
That marked a former day. 

'T is all quite right, but here, to me, 
Two thousand miles away, 

There comes a sense of longing 
For the things that are no more, 

When, arm in arm, we pushed the baize 
Of Moriarty's door. 

Those scrambled eggs were better 
Than a dinner by the shore ! 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

1 seem to see the foaming mugs, 

To see the buxom dame 
Who often stopped her knitting 

And from her parlor came 
To chide some ribald youth whose song 

Was lost to sense of shame. 

The cellar where Gus Traeger drew 

The beer so highly prized 
(When "Ein, noch einmal, zwei, noch einmal, 

Hyrusasized"), 
It tasted mighty good to us 

Although not sterilized. 

I see the homeward sailing crews — 

Beneath the arching elms 
Which, with their canopies of green, 

Shut out the starry realms — 
Making short tacks with schooner loads 

That will not mind their helms. 

Ah ! Those were happy days and nights 

When, with digestion placid, 
We sipped our beer or strolled at dark 

The streets we knew were lass-ied, 
And recked not of the wrath to come, 

Nor dreamed of uric acid. 

But stop ! There 's one name that I know, 

One that I can recall : 
The Wheeler & Wilson Band — the Pequot House — 

I see it all ! 
And leading the "Blue Danube Waltz" 

That seemed to start the ball ; 

Guests taking hotfoot to their rooms; 

Proprietor in funk. 
Then things grow hazy, indistinct — 

Yours truly in his bunk, 

C»81 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

While bands of Indians rip and roar — 
'Most everybody drunk! 



And so you will forgive me 

If, like Riley's man, I say 
1 'd give 'most anything I have 

"To hear the Old Band play." 
Just turn 'em loose, boys, once, 

For all the fellows far away ! 

I don't know who will win the race 

Or who will win the game; 
I hope when '82 lines up 

You '11 cheer the Blue to fame. 
But win or lose, what matters it? 

We 're Yale men just the same. 

Thrice happy those whose lots were cast 

To be here at this meeting ; 
To give old Yale and former friends 

One hearty, rousing greeting ; 
To snatch a day from Father Time — 

From hours so sw T iftly fleeting. 

And when the room is wreathed in smoke, 
And w T ine and wit are flowing; 

When toasts are drunk, and songs are sung, 
And things get really going — 

The time the morning star appears, 
And early cocks are crowing — 

When you have pledged each other's health 
And pledged the dear old class, 

And drunk to Yale, the "Girl in Blue" 
(Imperishable lass), 

When sentiment asserts itself, 
Let each man fill his glass,

And, if he feels that he can stand 

One bumper more of Mumm, 
Or, if he does not like that brand, 

Choose any kind of rum 
That long experience has shown 

Is suited to his "turn" — 

That will not hurt his inner man 

Or put him on the bum — 
And think of those unfortunates 

(I know, alas! of some), 
And pledge that most unhappy chap, 
" The man who could n't come." 

[Three times three for Ted Holland.] 

Toast-master : Ted wanted to know all that went on 
here, and I am very glad to be able to report to him that 
his message was so cordially received. 

The next toast is "Rushes." Unless you stop to think of 
the meaning of a simple word like that, you don't realize 
how many significations it has. You go back into ancient 
history and you find that, if it were not for the rushes of the 
Nile, little Moses would not have found shelter in the pool, 
and the children of Israel might never have been led out of 
bondage in Egypt. Coming along down the avenue of time 
by leaps and bounds or rushes, we know that the first thing 
that threw us together as a class, and threw us against the 
class of '8 1, was the rush at the Grammar School lot. Then, 
coming into college, we remember some of the rushes which 
we used to hear the other fellow make, and wished we could 
make ourselves. 

The man who is going to respond to this toast is well 
qualified to talk about that kind of rushes. But the par- 
ticular kind of rushes that we had in mind when we selected 
the toast was the rush of life which leads to success, and the 
man who is going to respond exemplifies that kind, I know. 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

because, only a few years after he got out of college, the 
people in Chicago, where he lived and where I lived for a 
while, were talking about the promising young lawyer, and 
all that was said about him has been amply fulfilled. And 
Chicago, as you know, is the place of rush. They even have 
a street named Rush Street [laughter], and, without more 
ado, I call upon the man who knows how to "get-there- 
quick"— Cyrus Bentley. [Loud applause and three times 
three for Cyrus Bentley.] 

Bentley: My dear Toast-master and Fellow Class- 
mates : The chill at this end of the room has so affected 
my voice that I am not sure that I can occupy the whole of 
the hour and a half which has been assigned to me; but if 
you will all pay attention and shut the windows, I will do 
the best I can, and if Jim Rice is on my side, who can be 
against me? 

I got a little agreeable information out of this program 
to-night. I was surprised when, on taking up the card, I 
saw that I was to respond to "Rushes," because I did not 
believe you would remember how I invariably took the brunt 
of the physical contests that we had with '81 and '83. It is 
pleasant, indeed, to me to know that you have not forgotten 
my physical prowess. I must say, though, that I am inclined 
to criticize the sentiment which goes with the toast: "He was 
bound to follow the suit." As I remember those occasions, 
I never tried to follow the suit, but was quite content to 
save the z//7^rclothes. 

The rushes which we fought out years ago, so far as I 
recall them now, consisted of a delirium of noise and pro- 
fanity, and a good many hard knocks. You played your 
part well, holding your breath and butting in with lowered 
head. As the years have passed, the elements, the distinc- 
tive characteristics, which took us into the rushes and kept 
us hard at work in them have remained for us, though the 
obstacles in our way are no longer human. The days of 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

physical strife for grown men are past, but obstacles there 
have been and are, many and serious. It is fine to think 
that so many of us, after twenty-live years of struggle 
against difficulties of one kind and another, are here to- 
night to recall the pleasant, if strenuous, days of the past, 
and to speak of the pleasant days of the present. [Ap- 
plause.] I don't know any better work that has been done, 
for which our college rushes were an education, than the 
work which has its climax in our feast to-night. I am sure 
there were innumerable obstacles, harder to overcome than 
the freshmen of '83, or the sophomores of '81, which our 
committee have fought their way through, and we all must 
recognize their services to the class, the indomitable charac- 
teristics they have displayed, and the memorable experience 
we owe to them. [Applause.] 

What is it that gives the peculiar charm and interest to 
such an occasion as this? Of course, foremost in all our 
minds is the thought that it is enough to meet together and 
exchange reminiscences, to look at the pictures which our 
thoughtful toast-master has provided for us, and to consider 
the ways of life which the members of our class have fol- 
lowed. But there is something less tangible than that, not 
better than that, nor more than that, but different. The 
years which we spent together here at Xew Haven were the 
preliminary years of youth. Life presented to us then no 
problems which we feared to face. Our ideals were un- 
tarnished, nor had they been proven impracticable. The 
struggles before us we were willing and perhaps even anx- 
ious to encounter; and so the associations of this occasion 
revive in us that spirit of youth which is the most precious 
possession of life, to which we should hold fast until the end. 
Such a tie, sentimental and subtle — perhaps indefinable — a 
real tie, nevertheless, binds us together. May these occa- 
sions be repeated for many years, for many years to come. 
In truth, I do believe that we shall keep our youth just in pro- 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

portion as we look forward to, and as we participate in, 
them. I remember I heard, when we came back for our 
twentieth reunion, that the twenty-fifth was the end, that men 
did not return very much after the twenty-fifth anniversary. 
I trust that will not be true of us, and that from this night 
we shall be planning for the next reunion, though they must 
not be too frequent, for the edge of them would be dulled 
if they were repeated very year. Through the five-year in- 
tervals to look forward to them and to look backward to 
them, and to think of all that they mean, and of the expe- 
riences that they revive, will surely make more efficient our 
work in the world, and strengthen our hope for that which 
is to come. [Applause.] 

We have lived out of college twenty-five years. That is 
more than half of the average life of the college graduate, 
but I will not think that much of sunlight does not remain. 
Let us sing processionals as long as Chester and Archie will 
write us the words, leaving the inevitable recessional to take 
care of itself. [Applause.] 

One bright afternoon not many weeks ago I went to the 
church at St. Denis, the sepulcher of French royalty, where 
marble tombs guard the anointed dust of Louis the Saint and 
his successors of the house of France, tenants of the kingly 
office. Apart from the rest, deeply hidden in the shadows of 
the vault beneath the altar, lie Louis the Martyr and his 
most unhappy queen. As I stood beside their white stone 
coffins, rather inclined to moralize upon the crumbling vanity 
of human grandeur and ambition, near-by chimes struck out 
upon the hour that cheerful tune to which we have, in days 
gone by, beneath the elms, so often sung: 

"Brothers, the day is ended, 
Lost in the surge of time." 

It seemed a message from the sunlit world without to 
those cold ashes locked in their funereal cells. 1 waited and 

t'33] 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

listened, held bv the associations of the familiar melody, 
carried in imagination to our approaching class reunion; 
and my thoughts were gloomy as I reflected that soon enough 
that message of the bells would sound for each of us. But 
when, turning away from the sanctuary of the dead, I re- 
visited the outer air, instinct with life and redolent of spring, 
I saw what we all may see for ourselves even on this twenty- 
fifth anniversary; I saw that the sun was still shining; the 
shadows indeed were beginning to lengthen, but hours of 
davlight yet remained. [Long-continued applause.] 

Toast-master : The next toast is "Skins and Cribs," familiar 
to you all. The man who is to respond is peculiarly fitted 
bv reason of the fact that he is a dermatologist and a gyne- 
cologist at times. [Laughter.] He has attained a position 
out West that reflects honor upon him. He is not only a 
practitioner, but a teacher and editor, and if you knew 
all about the experience he had when he laid low several 
''thugs'' who attacked him one night, you might say that he 
Avas an adventurer. He certainly had an adventure which 
was most remarkable. I won't dilate upon that fact, but he 
is qualified to talk about this toast, though not in the signi- 
ficance which in part it had to most of us when we were 
undergraduates. He can put any interpretation upon it 
that he wishes. I ask Foster to speak to you upon Skins and 
Cribs. [Applause.] 

Foster: Mr. Toast-master and Classmates and 
dear Friends : In the first place, I want to say, God bless 
you all ! The toast-master has assigned me to a toast which 
he knew I very well knew I did n't know anything about. I 
saw it for the first time this evening when I read the pro- 
gram, and consequently I am going to ignore it entirely. 

Before I say a word — and I shall make mv message to 
you very brief— I want to express again, for the second time 
to-day, my own appreciation and gratitude to those who 
have prepared for us this beautiful hospitality which we 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

have all enjoyed for these several days. I have been back 
to very few of these meetings, and I had no idea of what 
was going to greet me when I reached Xew Haven. I had 
read something about a club-house and a dormitory, but I 
looked forward to a sort of crowded, uncomfortable time, 
the discomfort of which I was quite willing to undergo for 
the pleasure it would give me, but I had no idea I was going 
to be surrounded by all the comforts and luxuries I could 
find at home. All these things have been prepared for us 
by our committee, who have striven so hard for our plea- 
sure and comfort. Again I want to thank them, and I think 
I speak for all of you when I say that they deserve the 
thanks and credit of every one of us. [Applause and motion 
seconded.] 

Gentlemen, I have lived for twenty-five years a long ways 
from all of you. It has not been my privilege to come to 
many of our meetings. This is the third meeting I think I 
have attended of the class. I came to the triennial, and I 
was here ten years ago. I have been with you, however, in 
spirit at every meeting. I have received the invitations, and 
I have, I think, almost always responded to them, but, unfor- 
tunately, it has not been my fortune to attend the meetings. 
I have regretted it, and I know what I have missed. I hare, 
however, kept in touch, so far as I could, with the members 
of the class of '82. I have read every line that I have seen 
printed in our class records, and I have read and been inter- 
ested in everything that every man of '82 has done, and 
while, from certain points of view, perhaps we have not 
produced any men who have done great work such as would 
entitle them to a niche in the Hall of Fame, we have, I be- 
lieve, been successful in life. As I look around me to-night 
and see our classmates after twenty-five years (seventy-five 
per cent., I think, of the living class of '82 are here to- 
night), the class of '82 has taken as high a rank as any class 
that has ever graduated from Yale College and has met 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

with as much success in life. What is success in life? It is 
measured, of course, by different standards, but, according 
to my code of ethics, which is a very simple one, a man is suc- 
cessful who has a happy family life, who keeps himself in good 
health, keeps his bills paid, and who keeps his reputation clean. 
[Applause.] There are men who acquire wealth, some of 
them honestly, and some of them by other means, but I don't 
look upon wealth as a measure of success. I look around 
me at a prosperous, healthy, fine set of fellows who were 
my classmates, and whom I am proud to have been the 
classmate of, and every one of whom I believe is my friend 
to-dav. I assure you, gentlemen, that if any one of you ever 
comes into the Northwest where I live — and I am the only 
'82 man in the State of Minnesota (Kittredge is a few 
miles from the State of Minnesota) — I assure you, gentle- 
men, that if any of you ever come to the State of Minne- 
sota, I will throw the gates wide open and give you a royal 
hospitality. [Applause.] 

You have been, gentlemen, I think, rather surfeited with 
verses to-night, but in a sentimental moment (and I some- 
times still have them) I wrote a few lines which I wanted to 
dedicate to the class of '82. They are very brief, and, with 
your permission, I will read them. [Applause and three 
times three for Burnside Foster.] 

AFTER TWENTY-FIVE YEARS 

Dear Mother Yale, who made us what we are. 

To whom as boys we came, with whom to manhood grew, 

Again we come with greetings from afar 

To offer thee that reverence which is thy due. 

The years have flown since on that day in June 

We stepped from thy gates, regretfully but proud ; 

The day of parting had come all too soon. 
But each was eager for life's busy crowd. 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

Armed with thy strength, thy courage, and thy love, 
We started forth, each on our several ways. 

Bright was the day, and clear the skies above, 
The path looked easy to our youthful gaze. 

Within our veins there beat the pulse of Yale, 

Within each heart was something that Yale had given, 

Something which said to each, "You cannot fail," 

And, with that something, toward our goals we 'vc striven. 

What is that gift which every son of Yale 

Bears with him when he leaves her halls? 
What is that talisman which tempers every gale 

Alike to him who conquers or who falls? 

My classmates, friends, and fellow sons of Yale, 
Answer yourselves, what is the best of gifts? 

In your life's battle what does most avail 

To help you win? What most your burdens lifts? 

It is a feeling words cannot define, 

It is a spirit common to us all, 
Which Yale has breathed into your lives and mine, 

W T hich never sleeps, which hears Yale's every call. 

That spirit makes us sure to do our part, 

To do our best, not for ourselves alone, 
For where there beats the true Yale heart 

There stands a man to be depended on. 

The sons of Yale, a mighty, loyal band, 

Loyal to selves, to country, and to Yale, 
Are found wherever in this mighty land 

Are needed strength and courage to prevail. 

So we come back year after year 

To meet and greet each other, 
To sing Yale's songs and cheer Yale's cheer, 

And to honor our common Mother. 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

Few years at best remain to us 

Ere we go, when or whither 
No man can tell, no man can guess, 

But Yale shall live forever ! 

So let us make the best of life, 

As long as life shall last, 
And when we cease our toil and strife, 

When the tide is ebbing fast — 

Then lift the cup, let no man fail, 

Good friends of Eighty-two; 
Let 's drink one final toast to Yale — 

God bless the dear old Blue ! 

[Long-continued applause.] 

Toast-master: I should have added to my characteriza- 
tion of the last speaker the words poet and all-round spell- 
binder. [Laughter.] 

The next toast will be responded to by another one of 
the representatives of the pedagogic profession, who has 
been charged with a great responsibility in the rearing of 
boys during those ages when they are most susceptible to 
influences, good or bad, and I know that the men who have 
boys appreciate that it is a great thing to have schools at the 
head of which are men of sterling character, of such true 
principles that you are willing to take your boys from your 
families and your homes and intrust them to them. [Ap- 
plause.] The next speaker has been at the head of a very 
important preparatory educational institution since 1890; 
seventeen years he has occupied that position and fulfilled 
its responsibility, and in that time has sent to Yale many 
boys who have reflected credit upon his institution and upon 
those principles which he instilled into them. I will ask 
Pratt to speak upon "Marks and Remarks." [Applause.] 
Pratt: Mr. Toast-master and Fellow Classmates, 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

whom I have met with joy and pleasure to which it is im- 
possible to give expression: I want to reiterate the thanks, 
the personal thanks which I feel to the committee for the 
royal good time and the excellence of their preparation. 

When I received an imitation from the committee to be 
on the program to-night, I rubbed my eyes and looked at 
the letter again to see if there had been some mistake in the 
name : 

"For I have neither wit, nor words, nor worth, 
Action, nor utterance, nor the power of speech." 

In fact, when I scanned the list of my classmates endowed 
with wit and humor, and ability to make an after-dinner 
speech, I felt that the committee, having tried elsewhere, 
must have been in the predicament of Charlie Huggins, and 
I in the situation of Mayme, who said: "Charlie Huggins 
made desperate love to me last night." "Ah," replied 
Edyth, "I am not at all surprised. He has been desperate 
ever since I refused him." [Laughter.] 

The honor, however, was too tempting to admit a re- 
fusal, and I gladly embrace the opportunity to say some- 
thing to those I have seen, most not at all, some only once 
or twice in a quarter of a century. 

Doubtless some word of the growth and development of 
old Yale, now new Yale, and a discussion of her problems 
and needs, and how we are to help her, would be in order. 
This I will leave to others better versed in the subject, 
though I might remark, in passing, that, when I read of the 
attitude of the university in regard to the gift of the Stan- 
dard Oil magnate, I was reminded of the story of the darky 
preacher's discourse on tainted money, which concluded 
somewhat as follows : 

"Brethren and sisterens, w'en yo' stops ter kinsider de mil- 
lions and millions and millions dis yhere man owns, and in- 
spect dese yhere millions 'longside his gifts, de inspection 

C1393 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

am powerful queer. Now hit ain't fo' me to enquire whar 
de money comes from dat each member of my flock draps in 
de plate, en I don't 'zackly see why fo' my colleagues up 
North ask questions— de onliest taint I bin able ter diskiver 
'bout dis yhere tainted money is 'tain't 'nuff." [Loud laugh- 
ter and applause.] 

Leaving the consideration of larger questions, my thought 
turned to a more personal side of our gathering, and I re- 
called some of the stories extant concerning a few of our 
number, for the authenticity of which, however, I will not 
vouch. When I remember the ability of all the men in '82, 
not only to express themselves, but to discriminate in the 
choice of a wife, adhering to the doctrine of evolution, and 
the development and improvement of the race, I cannot be- 
lieve that one of them, when asked about his daughter: 
"What did you think of your daughter's graduation essay?" 
replied: "I did n't permit myself to think about it. I simply 
did my duty and admired it." 

Kittredge has been our most successful standard-bearer 
in politics, and it is said that, not being entirely on the side 
of the administration, he loves to repeat a conversation he 
overheard between two Irishmen who met after a period of 
absence. After the first greeting one asked: u Hov yez 
heard the news?" "Naw," the other said. "What news?" 
"The Pope is dead." "Which wan? Toledo Pope?" 
"Naw. The real Pope; the Pope of Rome." "Well, now, 
that 's too bad, too bad! I hope Misther Roosevelt won't 
app'int a Protesthant in his place." 

We teachers, though set down as dictatorial members of 
the community, sometimes get our deserts. It is said that 
one of our number, who teaches in a famous school in New 
England, on seeing one of the small boys in the study hall 
with very dirty hands, said to him: "Jamie, I wish you 
would not come to the hall with your hands soiled that way. 
What would you say if I came here with soiled hands?" 

[HO] 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

"I would n't say anything, 1 ' was the prompt reply. k 'l \1 
be too polite." [Laughter.] 

I am going to tell you something on Wight, who lived for 
a while in Wisconsin, and possibly you know that in Wiscon- 
sin we have a rather large foreign element. It was said that 
when he was visited by some friends on one occasion he was 
rather long coming into the reception-room. "I 'm sorry to 
have kept you waiting," he remarked, as he entered, "but 
I have just had to perform a wooden wedding in the 
church." "What !" said one of his visitors. "I never heard 
of such a thing. What kind of ceremony was it?" "Oh," 
answered the clergyman, with a twinkle in his eye, "it was 
the marriage of a couple of Poles." [Laughter.] 

The lawyers must not be neglected in this recital of anec- 
dotes. Yet I wonder if it was any of the class of '82 that 
was badgering an unfortunate witness in cross-examination. 
In reply to one of the questions the victim began: "I 
think—" "We don't want you to think," interrupted the 
lawyer. "We want your testimony." "Unfortunately, then," 
he retorted, "I am unable to answer; for in giving testimony, 
not being a lawyer, I am obliged to think." 

Another, though I have it from good authority, I am in- 
clined to doubt. Soon after our graduation, when the pres- 
ent distinguished array of legal talent had yet its reputation 
to make, and was still ready to accept some humble em- 
ployment at the bar, a prisoner was brought before the bar 
in the criminal court, but was not represented by a lawyer. 
"Where is your lawyer?" inquired the judge who presided. 
"I have none," responded the prisoner. "Why have n't 
you?" "Have n't any money to pay a lawyer," he replied. 
"Do you want a lawyer?" asked the judge. "Yes, your 
honor." "There are Walter Badger and Hercules Bates 
and Albert Atterbury," said the judge, pointing to a group 
of young attorneys who were about the court, waiting for 
something to turn up, "and Cy Bentley is out in the corridor." 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

The prisoner eyed the budding attorneys in the court- 
room, and after a critical survey stroked his chin and said: 
"Well, I guess I will take Mr. Bentley." [Loud bursts of 
laughter.] 

A Voice: As long as he did n't take John Kellogg, he 
was all right. [Laughter.] 

A Voice: He would have got six months if he had. 
[Renewed laughter and cries of "That 's right."] 

Prat l: Cragin was one of us grinds in college. You all 
remember that as long as Harry Piatt haunted the Elysian 
Fields of the first division, having an eye to Cragin's inter- 
ests, he always assisted, with an imaginary crank, the halt- 
ing efforts of Cragin, weighed down with information, to 
unburden his knowledge upon the professor. In spite of 
Cragin's high-stand proclivities, and in defiance of all well- 
established rules in regard to the etiquette of high-stand 
men after college days, he has amounted to something, is 
a professional and social success, and has a dry humor of his 
own. It is related of him that a charming New York hostess 
— one of the four hundred, for aught I know — remarked 
one evening to him : "I am sorry, doctor, you were not able 
to attend my supper last night ; it would have done you good 
to be there." "It has already done me good, madam," he 
replied; "I have just prescribed for three of the guests." 
[Laughter.] 

On another occasion he was in the hospital operating upon 
a man for appendicitis. When the man came to (as they 
sometimes do), he said: "Why, it seems to me, doctor, I 
have seen you before." The doctor said: "Well, I don't 
know but you have." Said the patient: "You remember a 
man who was hurt in an accident a while ago and you ampu- 
tated my right forefinger?" The doctor said: "Why, yes, 
I do remember that." Said he: "You ought to be satisfied 
now; you took my index then, and now you have got my ap- 
pendix." [Laughter.] 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

As I look about on your faces to-night, it seems scarcely 
possible that twenty-five years have elapsed since we armed 
ourselves with sheepskins and proudly marched forth to 
battle with the world. Many of you seem to have drunk of 
the fountain of perpetual youth. There is Billie Parsons, 
the proud father of five promising children. He does n't 
look a day older than he did when he stood by my side on 
the platform at Center Church, while President Porter 
bombarded us with a volley of Latin, and Professor (now 
President) Northrop kindly instructed us sot to -core, in 
English, when to make our bow and disappear in the crowd. 
I can readily believe what Mel Clement told about Billie, 
not only because Mel was superintendent at Bethany Sun- 
day School, and, having been a teacher there myself, I am 
bound to believe him, but because Billie's whole appearance 
bears it out. 

It seems that in 1904 Billie took his w T ife and boys to Eu- 
rope, where he left them, returning unattended. On the 
w r ay back he found on the steamer a charming young lady, 
to whom, true to the traditions of his class, he proceeded to 
make himself agreeable. As the liner was entering New 
York Harbor, the young lady was heard to inquire of an- 
other Yale man: "Did Mr. Parsons graduate in 1900 or 
1 901?" 

So it is with many another. Time has dealt gently with 
us. The struggle with the world has developed character 
and strength in our countenances, but the youthful spirit 
shines there triumphant over care and responsibility and 
life's work. We greet each other with friendly handshake 
and recognize the fruition of the promise of our college 
days. Each has made for himself a place in his community, 
and is giving of himself to those about him. Various de- 
grees of worldly success have attended us, but our aim is still 
faithfully and earnestly to do the work our hands find to 
do. And here we meet, while ours is yet the fighting line, 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

to gain the cheer that comes from mutual greeting, to hear 
of one another's welfare, and to renew the friendship of 
college days. 

And yet, were we to satisfy ourselves with mutual well- 
wishing, the reminiscences of bygone days, and the story of 
our careers, the occasion would be incomplete to me. There 
is a deeper chord to strike. College days may have left 
us careless boys, but a quarter-century has not passed with- 
out many an experience to make us think. I, for one, have 
been brought face to face with fundamental questions : 
Whence came our life and whither does it tend? Is there a 
God? What is all this life for? Does death end all? And 
as they have rung in my ears, there have come before me 
the faces of the strong and gentle Campbell; the bright and 
promising Curtis; of Whitney with his sweet and lovable 
disposition; of Hand, transparent in his goodness and sin- 
cerity, and the others whose faces we miss here and whom 
we shall no more see on earth. And I have asked myself: 
"Can it be that their thought was the vibration of matter? 
that their noble intellectual and spiritual qualities had no 
foundation but in atoms and molecules, or, as we must say 
•to-day, in electrons? Is there no life apart from this mortal 
body, and must we look to have thought and hope and faith 
and love extinguished when we cease to breathe?" No, 
classmates, I cannot believe it, and I am not voicing now 
merely the teachings of my youth. Such vital questions one 
must settle for himself, and had my twenty-five years 
brought me nothing but the conviction that the unseen and 
spiritual is the real and everlasting world, they would be 
well-spent years. 

The knowledge of the reality of goodness and truth and 
justice, and of their eternal and omnipotent quality, makes 
the difficulties of life easier to surmount, gives hope for de- 
spair, supplants grief with joy, death with life, and bathes the 
heart and thought in the true fountain of perpetual youth. 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

And so, as I look into your faces to-night, I think I read 
there the message that to one and another has come the 
answer somewhat as it has come to me. With you I rejoice 
that you have found the inspiration to hopeful effort. What 
wonder that over you, who, consciously or unconsciously, 
cherish such convictions, the years pass lightly, and that 
upon you time fails to set his seal? [Prolonged applause.] 

Foster: Mr. Toast-master, may I say one word? Pratt 
has called a name to-night which has not been spoken before 
at this meeting. I think we all remember old Jim Camp- 
bell, one of the most lovable, noble, generous men that the 
class of '82 ever knew. I don't see very much to drink 
around here, but I should like to propose that we all rise, 
and those of us who can find anything to drink, drink a 
silent toast to dear old Jim Campbell. 

Toast-master: Now, boys, the next toast, if you have 
examined the list, being "Examinations," although you must 
regret the absence of Asa French, you may not be averse to 
having this dispensed with. I am conscious of the fact that 
I have occupied the lime-light for an undue portion of the 
evening. [Cries of "No!"] That was inevitable from the 
character of the entertainment. I am reminded of the man 
who said to the little boy: "Willie, I hear your father is 
dead; what were his last words?" "He did n't have no 
last words; mother was with him to the last." [Laugh- 
ter.] I am afraid I have placed myself in the position of 
mother. 

Now, boys, I want to say to you that this has been the 
most pleasant thing that I ever had to do in connection with 
'82, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the 
attention that you have given, and your appreciation of the 
entertainment which has been prepared by the committee, 
of which I am only one. I hope that this occasion will be 
an inspiration to you to come back to our next anniversary 
in even larger numbers.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

The program is now ended. I think there is nothing 
further for us to do. The vice-president has appointed some 
committees, and I believe he has decided to announce those 
at the dinner to-morrow night. I thank you very much. 

John Kellogg then made the following announcement : 

In regard to the boat race and the tickets, those 
of you who have n't your tickets can get them from me 
to-morrow morning. Those who have their tickets will know 
that the train leaves Union Station at n :io on Thursday 
morning, I presume in front. The train is made up of 
parlor-cars and day-coaches. Our parlor-car will be the last 
parlor-car of the parlor-cars on the train, and the day-coach 
will be immediately next to it. The coach is the first of the 
day-coaches, and the parlor-car the last of the parlor-cars. 
They will also have big labels on each for those of you who 
can read: "Class of '82." Those who cannot read will 
know that it is the last parlor-car. The parlor-car will be 
a buffet-car and will carry her coterie of servants with it, 
and also a hired man, and also a porter furnished by the 
company, together with a guard selected to look after Harry 
Piatt and those fellows who need free Scotches and beer all 
the time. That car will hold thirty-six, and we will put in 
a number of camp-chairs to make it hold as many as can get 
into it. I presume the thing we ought to do will be to have 
the ladies take that car, so far as it will accommodate them, 
and the rest of us will take the day-coach. [Applause.] 

Badger: Mr. Toast-master, may I say one word only? 
You showed a picture of the ball nine of '82 to-night. The 
man who was the life of that nine did not show in the photo- 
graph, the man who played in every game but one did not 
show; and in every game we played, the luck of that man, 
our classmate, was proverbial, and when he tossed the coin, 
he won, and we took our choice, except when we went to 
Brown and played there, the captain of the nine said: "No. 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 

Richardson can't toss the coin." At every meeting of '82 
which we have had George Richardson has been the life of 
the class. He comes from my end of the line. One of the 
best men that ever lived was George Richardson, and I 
don't want this meeting to adjourn to-night without drinking 
a silent toast to that prince of good fellows, one of the best 
men, one of the smartest, one of the noblest men that ever 
lived, and really and truly, and not to the detriment of any- 
body else, the life of '82. May I ask you all to drink a 
silent toast to George Richardson? 

The crowd dispersed, singing "Auld Tang Svne. ,, 

Wednesday morning was a period devoted to rest and 
recuperation by such as were wearied by the festivities of 
the previous day, and many of the men attended the com- 
mencement exercises and the alumni dinner in University 
Hall. In the afternoon a heavy rainfall cooled the atmo- 
sphere, but did not dampen the ardor of the ladies of the 
class, who in full numbers attended the reception given in 
their honor at the club-house. The members of the class 
were present in force, and the gathering was most enjoy- 
able, the guests of the occasion especially appearing to ap- 
preciate their novel surroundings. The benign influence of 
the ladies abashed and hushed the demon chorus, and the 
angel choir, now in the ascendant, tunefully rendered the 
beautiful verses composed by Tyman and Welch. In the 
evening the entire delegation of the class whiled away the 
hours until early morning with song and story in the tent. 

Thursday was given over to the university race. Through 
the foresight of Kellogg a buffet-car with a coach as trailer 
had been chartered for the class, luncheon was provided, 
and an otherwise tiresome trip thus made the occasion of 
another social gathering. Owing to adverse winds, the race 
was postponed until evening, but compensation for the delay 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

was found in the magnificent contest of the rival crews. It 
is stated by old habitues that no race has ever equaled in 
breathless excitement that of the current year, and to the 
members of '82 a greatly increased and personal interest 
was lent to the occasion by reason of the fact that the son of 
Jim Rice pulled number three in the Yale boat, wearing the 
'82 pin presented to him by his father's class. Victory un- 
der such circumstances had a double zest. 




At the Race 

While many of the class left for home immediately after 
the race, enough remained to make good company back to 
New Haven. To fill, not unacceptably, the vacancies caused 
by the deserters, the ladies present were invited to the table 
d'hote dinner in the club-house, at which thirty-five were 
present. Though tinged with the sadness of approaching 
separation, the evening passed agreeably, and so, gently and 
pleasantly, the present blended with the past, and the re- 
union was but a memory. 



At the annual New York dinner at the Yale Club on March 
6, 1908, Welch, chairman of the finance committee, read 
the following letter and financial report of the twenty-fifth 
reunion: 



THE TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY 



YALE UNIVERSITY 

New Haven, Conn., July 20, 1907. 
My dear Mr. Welch : 

I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letters of July 17 
and 18. The check for $18,000, representing the twenty- 
fifth anniversary subscription of the class of 1882, has been 
duly received and handed over to the Treasurer's office. 
The principal will be preserved intact in accordance with 
your request, the income alone being used, at the discretion 
of the Corporation. 

I assure you that the authorities of the University will 
feel that your class has made a very handsome contribution, 
especially in view of the financial situation in the country in 
the last few months. 

I am glad to take this opportunity to express to you my 
appreciation of the exceedingly high character of your anni- 
versary exercises. Your class has set an example which will 
have a marked effect in acting as a helpful tonic to the qual- 
ity of commencement reunions in New Haven. 

With high regard, I am, 

Sincerely yours, 

Anson Phelps Stokes, Jr.

BIOGRAPHIES 

Frank Frost Abbott is the son of Thaddeus Marvin 
Abbott and Mary Jane (Frost) Abbott. He is of English 
stock on both sides. His father's ancestors came from 




Frank Frost Abbott 



England about 1650 and settled in Xorwalk, Connecticut. 
His grandparents were Thaddeus Abbott of Redding, Con- 
necticut, and Rebecca Marvin of Wilton, Connecticut. 
Their son, Thaddeus Marvin Abbott, who was born in 
Redding on September 3, 181 1, was educated in the Red- 
ding schools and the St. John Private School of Ridgefield, 
Connecticut, engaged all his life in business and farming in 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

or near his birthplace, and died in White Plains, New York, 
on April 6, 1897. His wife was the daughter of Daniel 
Andrus Frost of Danbury, Connecticut, and Hannah Mal- 
lory of Redding. She was born in 18 19 in New York City, 
lived in New York till she was married, and died in Redding 
on July 5, 1895. 

Our classmate himself was born in Redding on March 
27, i860. He attended public school, the Sanford Pri- 
vate School in Redding, and the Albany (New York) High 
School. Throughout his college course he roomed with 
Sanford, freshman year in a private house, sophomore 
year in North, and junior and senior years in Farnam. He 
was editor of the Yale Courant in senior year, was a mem- 
ber of the class-day committee, and salutatorian at gradu- 
ation. He belonged to Eta Phi and Delta Kappa Epsilon, 
and is a graduate member of Wolf's Head. 

After graduation he spent the years from 1882 to 1891 
in New Haven, except for six months in 1884, when he was 
a private tutor in Washington, District of Columbia, and 
for two years (1889-91) he was studying in Germany and 
Italy. During the early part of his stay in New Haven he 
was studying in the Graduate School, and for the last five 
years was instructor in Latin at Yale. In 1891 he went to 
Chicago with the late President Harper to help him organ- 
ize the University of Chicago, being the first professor ap- 
pointed in that institution. His health suffered from the 
work attendant on the organization of the university, and 
he spent 1894-95 in Colorado recuperating, returning to 
Chicago in 1895. The year 1901-02 he spent in Rome as 
professor in the American School of Classical Studies. The 
principal fields in which he has specialized and in which most 
of his books and articles have been written are Latin 
epigraphy, Roman history, and colloquial Latin. He has 
been one of the editors of Classical Philology, a quarterly 



BIOGRAPHIES 

devoted to research in classical antiquity. At present he is 
professor of Latin in Princeton, having been elected to this 
position in 1908. His principal work there is in the Gradu- 
ate School. He was Clark scholar at Yale in 1882-83, 
Clark scholar and Larned scholar in 1883-84, a student at 
the University of Berlin in 1888, and in the University of 
Bonn in 1889, and took his Ph.D. at Yale in 1891. 

Of books he has published: "Selected Letters of Cicero" 
(Ginn & Co., 1897) ; "Roman Political Institutions" (Ginn 
& Co., 1 90 1 ) ; "The Toledo Manuscript of theGermania of 
Tacitus" (University Press of Chicago, 1904) ; "Short His- 
tory of Rome" ( Scott, Foresman & Co., 1 906 ) ; "Society and 
Politics in Ancient Rome" (Charles Scribner's Sons, 1909). 
He has also written a "Handbook for the Study of Roman 
History" (Scott, Foresman & Co., 1906), and numerous 
papers, of which the following is a list: "Notes upon Latin 
Llybrids," Classical Review, 1891 ; "On the Etymology of 
Osteria," Classical Review, 1891 ; "Notes on Cicero, Epist.

Silvia," University Record, Chicago, 1896; "The Chronol- 
ogy of Cicero's Correspondence during the Year 59 B.C.,"

was born on March 16, 1827, at New Haven, Connecticut, 
but spent a large part of his life at Meriden, Connecticut, 
where he died on May 28, 1891. The family was of 
Scotch origin, having come to this country early in the eigh- 
teenth century and settled at Bernardston, Massachusetts.

Connecticut. Prior to entering college he lived in New 
Haven, attending the New Haven High School and the 
Hopkins Grammar School, from which he was graduated in 
1878, entering '82 at the beginning of freshman year. 
During junior and senior years he roomed in Farnam with 
Shoemaker, playing football and rowing for recreation. He 
was a member of Kappa Sigma Epsilon and Delta Kappa 
Epsilon. 

After being graduated Allen roamed around the world 
for some time, and finally settled in Meriden, where he has 
since resided. He writes the following graphic account of 
his career: 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

"I 'm up a stump on this thing. My simple tale is cov- 
ered in a few brief words. 

"After leaving New Haven I traveled for the Meriden 
Bronze Company for a couple of years. Knocked around 
Chicago for a time, and then spent over three years in 
central Montana, working with cattle. 

"Came back to Meriden and went into an office. The 
people I worked for had an interest in the Meriden 
Gravure Company; things were unsatisfactory, and I was 
sent here. Got interested in the business and have been here 
ever since. 

"That 's about the story. In my devious corkscrewings I 
feel that I have retained all my vices and annexed very at- 
tenuated virtues. 

"Have worked hard, caught a full allowance of bumps 
and disappointments, I think, but on the whole accomplished 
somewhat. 

"Am sorry to have kept you and Jim and Josh waiting so 
long for this, but reviewing such a life and career is a thing 
not to be done lightly. 

"Heaven be good to you all. You need it." 

The career which Allen treats so lightly is really one of 
distinguished success. He is president and treasurer of the 
Meriden Gravure Company, and secretary of the Parker 
Clock Company. 

On November 2, 1893, he married Cornelia Parker 
Breese, a daughter of Theodore F. Breese of Meriden, Con- 
necticut. They have three children, all boys, ranging in age 
from three to fifteen years : Parker Breese, born October 3 1 , 
1895; Theodore Ferguson, born October 29, 1897; an d 
Gordon Ferguson, born October 2, 1906. 

His address is 501 East Main Street, Meriden, Connec- 
ticut.

most of his life in Brooklyn, New York, and died there on 
November 2, 1894. His family was of English origin, com- 
ing from England in 1638 and settling in Boston, and after- 
ward in Salisbury, Massachusetts. Allen's mother was born 
on August 14, 1826, at North Scituate, Rhode Island, and 
is still living. Her family was also of English origin, her 
ancestors having come from England and settled in Provi- 
dence, Rhode Island, prior to 1650. A large number of 
Allen's ancestors were members of the colonial government 
and took part in the various colonial wars. Several of his 
ancestors both on the maternal and paternal sides were 
likewise in the Revolutionary War. Three of his brothers

were graduated from Yale, one in the class of '68, one in 
'80, and one in '86. 

Allen was born in New York City on February 12, i860. 
He prepared for Yale at the Polytechnic Institute in Brook- 
lyn, New York, and entered college at the beginning of 
freshman year. During that year he roomed with Bate on 
Crown Street, during sophomore year with Corey in Divin-

Delta Kappa, and during junior year of Delta Kappa 
Epsilon. 

After leaving college he traveled extensively abroad, vis- 
iting Norway, Sweden, Russia, the Holy Land, Italy, Tur- 
key, Greece, and Egypt. Returning to this country, he 
entered his father's firm, that of William L. Allen & Com- 
pany, and it has since been unnecessary for him to change 
his occupation, that of commission merchant in dried fruits 
and California products. 

Outside of business he has given some attention to local 
politics in Brooklyn, not as an office-seeker, but as an influ- 
ence for good, and he exercises considerable political power 
in his neighborhood. He has been a member of the gen- 
eral committee of the Republican party for many years, has 
been chairman of the Board of Education for the local 
school board, district Republican leader, and a delegate to 
the State Convention for the last ten years. He is now a 
member of the board of governors of the Sons of the 
American Revolution, and is a member of the Crescent Ath- 
letic Club of Brooklyn. 

He is unmarried.

Atterbury was born on August 29, i860, at Trenton, New 
Jersey, where he resided until he was twelve years of age, 
when he went to school at Chester, Pennsylvania. There- 
after he attended the Pennsylvania Military Academy at 
Chester, from which he was graduated in 1876. He then 
spent one year under a private tutor, and entered the sopho- 
more class of Princeton in 1877. Subsequently he left 
Princeton and entered Yale with the class of '82 in Decem- 
ber, 1878. Atterbury roomed alone throughout his college 
course, at first in the town and subsequently in North Col- 
lege. He was an editor of the Yale News for two years, 
and took the Cobden Club medal for excellence in political 
economy. 

After leaving Yale Atterbury attended the Columbia Law 
School, from which he was graduated with the degree of 
B.L. in 1884. He then spent four years as a clerk, after 
which he entered upon practice by himself. During the 
spare time of his early career as a practising lawyer he 
wrote an essay of about one hundred pages on the "Admis- 
sibility of Parole Evidence in the Interpretation of Wills," 
which was awarded a prize of two hundred and fifty dol- 
lars, offered by the Bar Association of the State of New 
York for the best essay on that subject. 

He is now carrying on the practice of a successful lawyer 
in the city of New York, while in Plainfield, New Jersey, 
where he resides, he is a leader in many social and public- 
spirited enterprises. In politics Atterbury is a Cleveland 
Democrat, and has never held public office. He is a 
member of the University Club and of the Association 
of the Bar of the City of New York, and has twice, 
namely, in 1894 and again in 1907, traveled extensively 
abroad.

ger's mother was born in Milton, Massachusetts, November 
15, 1827. She spent her early life in Milton, and died 
October 13, 1901. Her father was John Campbell, and 
her mother Fanny Babcock, both of Milton. On his moth- 
er's side Badger's ancestors were Scotch, and their first 
American home was at Milton, Massachusetts. 

Badger was born in Boston on January 15, 1859, and 
lived in that city until it came time for him to go to Yale. 
The Washington Grammar School, the Phillips Grammar 
School (1873), the English High School (1876), and 
Adams Academy (1878) had the honor of contributing 
to his early education. He entered Yale at the begin- 
ning of freshman year with the class of '82, and imme- 
diately showed evidences of his athletic ability by becoming 
captain of the freshman ball nine. All through college, 
the first two years of which he roomed with Camp on 
York Street and in South Middle, and the last two with 
Knapp in Farnam, he was a conspicuous figure by virtue of 
his athletic prowess. For four years he was on the univer- 
sity football team, and he was a member of the university 
baseball team for three years and captain in senior year. 
In junior year he was also president of the Yale Athletic 
Association and of the Intercollegiate Athletic Association. 
Badger was on the peanut bum committee, president of the 
Kappa Sigma Epsilon campaign committee, and on the 
sophomore German committee. He was a member of 
Kappa Sigma Epsilon, He Boule, Delta Kappa Epsilon, and 
Skull and Bones. 

September 21, 1882, he entered the office of Solomon 
Lincoln and George L. Huntress. While a student there he 
took a three years' course in the Boston University Law 
School, being graduated cum laude in 1885. The summer 
of 1885 he spent in Europe, partly on business and partly 
on pleasure. He was admitted to the bar of Massachusetts 
in September, 1885. 



BIOGRAPHIES 

He was ambitious to become a trial lawyer. Before he 
had studied law a year he began to try cases, and tried sev- 
eral of them before he was admitted to the bar. Since ad- 
mission most of his work has been done in the court-room. 
If he has had any specialty it has been the trial of jury 
cases. It has been said that he has tried as many jury cases 
as any lawyer in the State of Massachusetts. He has tried 
for the Boston and Maine Railroad, the Travelers' Insurance 
Company, the JEtna Life Insurance Company, the John 
Hancock Life Insurance Company, the Boston gas com- 
panies, the Jones & Laughlin Steel Company, the Cudahy 
Packing Company, Albert C. Burrage, Henry H. Rogers, 
and others. 

Perhaps the most difficult case of all was that growing 
out of the Subway explosion of March 4, 1897. The final 
trial consumed eighty-six days and resulted in a victory for 
his client, the Boston Gas Light Company, against the Edi- 
son Electric Illuminating Company. The case involving 
the most money in which he has been engaged was that of 
the Bay State Gas Company of Delaware, George W. Pep- 
per, Receiver, v. H. H. Rogers. 

For several months he was president of the Everett Na- 
tional Bank of Boston. He is a Republican, but, as he 
writes : 

"My time has been devoted to my profession. I have 
taken no part in politics. My work has demanded very close 
application, leaving me very little time for outside matters. 
Summers I have indulged in yachting and tennis, but during 
the remainder of the year sports are out of the question." 

Badger belongs to the University Club of New York, the 
University Club of Boston, the New Haven Graduates' 
Club, the Exchange and Algonquin clubs of Boston, the 
Brookline Country Club, the Yale Club of New York, the 
Eastern Yacht Club, the Boston Yacht Club, and the Curtis 
Club. His foreign travel includes a trip through England, 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

Scotland, Ireland, and Belgium in 1885, and through 
France, Holland, and Germany in 1900. 

On October 6, 1887, he married Elizabeth Hand Wilcox 
of New Haven, at Center Church in that city. She is the 
daughter of Daniel Hand Wilcox and Frances Louisa ( Ans- 
ley) Wilcox of Savannah, Georgia. George A. Wilcox, an 
uncle of Mrs. Badger, was graduated from Yale, as were 
her brothers: Ansley, Marrion, Daniel H., Francis M., and 
David Urquhart Wilcox. 

They have two children: Walter Irving Badger, Jr., 
born September 16, 1891, at Cambridge, Massachusetts, 
and Grace Ansley Badger, born July 13, 1893, at West 
Chop, Massachusetts. Young Walter completed his pre- 
paratory course at St. Paul's, Concord, with the class of 
1908. He then spent six months in Arizona and four 
months in Europe, and is now a member of the class of 
1913 at Yale. 

His business address is 53 State Street, Boston, and his 
residence is 126 Brattle Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

park commissioner of Harrisburg, to which he returned 
after his years in Seattle. He is a member of the Market 
Square Presbyterian Church, the Merion Cricket Club (of 
Haverford), the Harrisburg Country Club, and the Dau- 
phin County Historical Society. In 1882, after leaving col- 
lege, and again in 1895, he visited Europe and traveled 
through many countries. 

On September 5, 1892, he married Fay Alger, daughter 
of General Russell A. Alger and Annette Henry. Mrs. 
Bailey's ancestors came from New England and were of 
English origin. Her brother, Frederick M. Alger, is a 
graduate of Harvard '99. 

There are two children: Russell Alger, born on April 3,

On my return I entered the law office of Biddle & Ward in 
Philadelphia, where my former college chum Harry Fries 
was then reading law ; and I was admitted to the bar in Phila- 
delphia in 1886. Recurring conditions of eye-strain obliged 
me to give up my profession and to go into business, in 
which I have been engaged since then."

Timothy Dwight was a cousin of his maternal grandfather, 
Judah Hinckley. It was this fact which gave him as a boy 
his first bias for Yale. 

Barbour was born on April 5, 1858, at Springfield, Indi- 
ana, where he lived till he was fourteen years old. He then 
moved with his parents to Oxford, Ohio. He attended the 
public school and high school there, and then entered Miami 
University. He finished his preparation for Yale under pri- 
vate tutors, and had done considerable work in natural his- 
tory, geology, botany, and chemistry before he entered in

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

Floyd Julius Bartlett is the son of Eathan E. Bartlett 
and Phoebe D. (Foster) Bartlett. Eathan E. Bartlett was 
born December 17, 1804, at Bath, New Hampshire. He 




Floyd Julius Bartlett 

graduated at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New 
York City, and practised in Warsaw, New York, where he 
passed the greater part of his life; he died there on July 25, 
1873. Dr. Bartlett's family long resided at Bath, New 
Hampshire, whither they moved from Newburyport, Mas- 
sachusetts, where they had settled upon their arrival from 
England in 1635. Bartlett's mother was born March 26, 
1 8 16, at Danby, New York, but spent most of her life at 
Warsaw, where she died on May 7, 1887. Her family was 
of English origin, her ancestors having come from England 
and settled at East Hampton, Long Island, at an early date. 
Bartlett's uncle, Julius Foster, was graduated from Hamil- 
ton in 1833, and from Princeton Theological Seminary in 



BIOGRAPHIES 

1837, and various cousins were graduated from Mount Hol- 
yoke Seminary, Yale and Princeton universities. 

Bartlett was born October 20, 1857, at Warsaw, New 
York. He prepared for college at the Warsaw Academy, 
entering '82 in September, 1878. During freshman year he 
roomed alone, and during the remaining three years with 
Palmer; in sophomore year in South Middle, and in junior 
and senior years in Durfee. He sang in the Freshman Glee 
Club, and was a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon. 

Immediately after leaving college Bartlett entered upon 
his career as a teacher, which profession he has since followed 
uninterruptedly. His first engagement was at his boyhood's 
home, Warsaw, New York, where from 1882 to 1886 he 
was vice-principal of the high school. From 1886 to 1891 
he was superintendent of schools at Fairport, New York, 
and then removed to Albany, where he became the head of 
the classical department of the State Normal College. He 
remained in Albany until 1 895, when he accepted his present 
position, that of principal of the Auburn (New York) High 
School. All of Bartlett's ambitions are connected with his 
profession, which he loves, and the city of his residence, to 
w T hich he is greatly attached, and that his fellow townsmen 
appreciate his ability and character is evidenced by the fol- 
lowing extract from the introductory remarks of Mr. Wil- 
liam H. Seward, Jr., at a recent banquet at which he pre- 
sided: 

"Mr. Bartlett's record as principal of the Auburn Aca- 
demic High School is so well known, not only to high-school 
graduates, but to all persons interested in education through- 
out the State of New York, that anything more than a for- 
mal introduction by me is unnecessary. 

"The record made by Mr. Bartlett in encouraging gradu- 
ates to continue their education with college courses is sirm 
ply astounding, and there are hundreds of Auburn graduates 
who in later years will bless him for the inspiration he has 



HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82

at the beginning of sophomore year. During his college 
course he roomed with Chenault, in sophomore year in the 
town, in junior year in Farnam, and in senior year in Durfee 
Hall. Bennett, commonly known as "Bunk," strolled onto 
the campus in sophomore year, where his bland smile, child- 
like demeanor, and Kentucky drawl soon won him a host of 
friends, and he and his running mate Chenault rapidly as- 
similated the college atmosphere. 

Since graduation he has been located in his native State, 
where he has interested himself in agricultural pursuits. 
Later politics occupied his attention, and he became deputy 
collector of internal revenue. Tiring of this, he accepted 
the position of cashier of the Louisville and Nashville Rail-

acres. The twenty-fifth anniversary was the first occasion 
on which Bennett returned to New Haven since 1882, 
and both he and Mrs. Bennett, whom he brought with him, 
enjoyed the occasion to the utmost. 

Bennett married on February 18, 1886, Mary W. War- 
field, the daughter of Benjamin Warfield and Clara Coch- 
rane. Both the father and grandfather of Mrs. Bennett

nett is opposed to race suicide, and is the father of seven 
children, all but two of whom are living. Of these three 
are boys and two are girls. The eldest son is a graduate of 
the State University of Kentucky, and is now a mechanical 
engineer in New York City with the American Blower Com- 
pany. Another son is with the Louisville and Nashville

his course he was with George Graves, sophomore year in 
North Middle, and junior and senior years in Farnam. 
Of his career since graduation Brewster writes: 
"Inasmuch as my future occupation was not clear to me 
at the time of my graduation, I took a year to think things 
over, spending a few months in graduate work with Presi- 
dent Porter at New Haven, and then (because I had to earn 
my living) teaching school for six months in Cleveland, as 
an assistant in Mr. Bridgman's Academy. In the summer 
of 1883 it became evident to me that I ought to study for 
the ministry, and I spent three years in theological study at 
the General Theological Seminary (Protestant Episcopal) 
in New York. There, just before my ordination to the 
diaconate, my dear friend and classmate, the late James 
Campbell, saw me, declared that I was tired and needed a 
change, and gave me a most liberal present for a four 
months' trip in Europe. For five years, from November, 
1886, I was an assistant minister in Calvary Parish, New 
York, being in charge of Calvary Chapel, East Twenty- 
third Street, during the last four years of this period. My 
marriage to Stella Yates took place June 10, 1891, and in

Jersey, where we spent four happy years, I being the rector 
of the Church of the Holy Communion. Here our oldest 
child, Katrina, was born. 

"In 1895 it seemed to the doctors best that I should reside 
in a dry climate, and, the way opening to the rectorship of 
Grace Church, Colorado Springs, we lived in that delightful 
spot from November, 1895, until May 30, 1906. Here our 
boy, named Benjamin Yates, was born. But sadness came 
to us in the death of our third child, Josephine Stella, aged 
six months, just before Christmas, 1900. 

"Colorado gave me health and vigor, and broadened my 
horizon. Though the East never ceases to attract, I am 
glad to have learned something of the great West. At the 
earnest request of the Bishop of Salt Lake, backing the call 
of the parish, I went to Salt Lake City, Utah, assuming the 
charge of the Cathedral Parish there (St. Mark's) on June 
I, 1906. 

"After three years of work in the Mormon city, the 
House of Bishops of my Church called me to be missionary 
Bishop of Western Colorado. I was consecrated to this 
office on June 17, 1909, at Salt Lake City, and at once moved 
to Colorado, making my residence at Glenwood Springs. 
But I am away from home more than half the time, travel- 
ing over the twenty huge counties on 'the Western Slope,' 
which are included in my jurisdiction. We have four living 
children now, two having been born in Utah. It was the 
advent of our little William, on June 24, 1907, which kept 
me away from the quarter-centennial reunion of the class." 

The date of Brewster's graduation from the seminary was 
1886. The European trip in 1886 took him to Great Brit- 
ain, France, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, and Italy. He 
visited the same countries again in the summer of 1889. A 
sermon of his on "Queen Victoria" has been issued in pam- 
phlet form, and he has published various articles, among 
them "Divorce and Marriage" in the Michigan Law Re-

which appeared in the Colorado Springs Gazette, December 
7, 1906. He was a member of the standing committee of 
the diocese of Colorado from 1897 to 1906, and president 
of the Council of Advice in the district of Salt Lake from 
1906 to 1909. From 1899 to 1906 he was chaplain of the 
Colorado Springs lodge of Elks, and from 1895 to 1906 
he was chaplain of the Colorado Springs council of the 
Royal Arcanum. In 1897 and 1898 he was a director of the 
Colorado Springs Young Men's Christian Association. 

His wife, Stella Yates, born on November 23, 1866, is 
the daughter of Charles Yates (brigadier-general in the 
Civil War) and Josephine Bosworth. She had the follow- 
ing kinsfolk who were college graduates: father, Charles 
Yates, Union; grandfather, Judge Joseph Sollace Bosworth 
of the New York Supreme Court, Hamilton; uncle, Joseph 
Bosworth, College of the City of New York; cousin, Bishop 
H. Y. Satterlee, Columbia. 

Brewster has had the following children: Katrina Myn-

Ferree Brinton is the son of John Ferree Brinton and 
Anna (Binney) Brinton. His parents both came of English 
stock. Our classmate's father was born on July 29, 1827, 
in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, a graduate of Yale in 
1848, and an attorney-at-law in Philadelphia and in Lan- 
caster County. He died in Philadelphia on November 20,

1878. His parents were Ferree Brinton and Elizabeth 
Sharpless of Lancaster County. The Ferree ancestors were 
French Huguenots, and came to this country in 1708 from

France via Bavaria, the Black Forest, and England, to 
settle in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, after a short so- 
journ at Esopus, New York. The Brinton ancestors came 
from Staffordshire, England, in 1624, and settled in Chester 
County, Pennsylvania. Our classmate's mother was born 
on December 24, 1834, in Boston, where she lived until her 
marriage. She died on July 17, 1870, at Newport, Rhode 
Island. Her parents were Amos Binney and Mary Anna 
Binney, first cousins, both of Boston. The Binney ancestors 
came from Nottinghamshire, England, in 1678, and settled 
at Hull, Massachusetts. Other ancestors include the 
Raines, the Shaws, the Lorings, and Stephen Hopkins,

who came over in the Mayflower in 1620. The Binney men 
of his mother's generation were all Harvard graduates. 
Brinton's brother Sharswood was in the Yale class of 1886. 

Brinton was born on July 8, 1861, in Philadelphia, lived 
in that city for about two years, then in Lancaster County 
till 1866, then in France till 1870, and then principally in 
Philadelphia until he entered college in 1878. For several 
years he was at Rugby Academy in Philadelphia, and for the 
last year before college had a private tutor. In freshman 
year he roomed alone at Mrs. Hotchkiss', on York Street, 
in sophomore year with Beach in 49 South Middle, in junior 
and senior years with Beach in Durfee. He was the chair- 
man of the senior supper committee and received an oration 
appointment. He was a member of Delta Kappa, of Psi 
Upsilon, and is a graduate member of Wolf's Head. 

He spent six months in Europe after graduation, visiting 
Ireland, England, Scotland, Holland, Belgium, Germany, 
Italy, France, Switzerland, Austria, and Hungary. On his 
return he entered the law school of the University of Penn- 
sylvania, and received the LL.B. degree, with the prize for 
the best final examination, in June, 1885. Thereupon he 
was admitted to practice in Philadelphia, and has been an 
attorney-at-law there since. He writes : 

"About nine years ago I bought two acres of land in 
Radnor Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, about 
eight minutes' w r alk from St. David's station, and built 
thereon a comfortable two-story house, with large rooms 
and wide porches. Since that time I have added, from time 
to time, three acres more of ground, and have improved the 
land, which was originally a corn-field, and also the house, 
so that I now have a very comfortable place of five acres, 
upon which, in addition to a rather large and attractive 
house, I have a chicken-house, an automobile-house, a small 
summer cabin, a vegetable-garden, tennis court, and plenty 
of lawn, with slowly growing trees and shrubbery. Here I

have been living all the year around for the past eight years, 
coming in to my law office in Philadelphia every day, either 
by train or by automobile. 

"I am sorry that I have nothing more entertaining to 
relate. I am, however, reasonably well, surrounded by a 
loving and attractive family, living in a comfortable home, 
having plenty of good friends, and provided with sufficient 
worldly wealth, including the products of my own labor, to 
make life for myself and family pleasant and happy. 

"I have had, by reason of my hardness of hearing, to 
restrict my own legal business to office work, and to assist 
other lawyers engaged in court work in the really legal end 
of their business. From a financial standpoint the arrange- 
ment is fairly good." 

In the course of his work he has found time to visit Eu- 
rope six times in addition to his 1882 trip. In 1889 he trav- 
eled in England and France. In 1890 it was Germany, 
Switzerland, and France. The following year he visited 
England and Wales. In 1906 the trip included Germany, 
France, and England. In 1907 it was restricted to Holland, 
while in 1908 it was an automobile trip in France. He is 
a member of the Graduates' Club of New Haven, the Uni- 
versity Club of New York, and the Rittenhouse Club of 
Philadelphia. At various times in the past he has belonged 
to the Racquet Club, the Country Club, the University Club, 
the Philadelphia Cricket Club, the Merton Cricket Club, 
and the Germantown Cricket Club, all of or near Phila- 
delphia. 

On April 25, 1893, in New Haven, Connecticut, he mar- 
ried Lina Ives, daughter of Dr. Robert S. Ives (Yale '64) 
and Maria Stille. They have three children: Caroline Ives, 
born on March 25, 1894; Anna Binney, born on January 
22, 1896; and Ferree Brinton, born on August 9, 1900, all 
in Philadelphia. Mrs. Brinton comes of a Yale family. 
In addition to her father, her grandfather, Levi Ives, was

nary. He entered '82 at the beginning of sophomore year 
and roomed with Beede on York Street in sophomore and 
in North during junior year. In senior year he roomed with 
Rolfe in North. 

After graduation he taught two years in Stamford, Con- 
necticut, and then entered the College of Physicians and 
Surgeons in New York, from which he received the de- 
gree of M.D. in 1887. For the two years following he 
was in the surgical department of Roosevelt Hospital, and 
then became first resident surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hos- 
pital in Baltimore, Maryland. In the fall of 1890 he re- 
turned to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New 
York as lecturer and demonstrator of anatomy, and was 
later secretary of the faculty. He was a member of the 
American Museum of Natural History, the American Asso- 
ciation of Anatomists, the New York Academy of Sciences, 
the New York Academy of Medicine, the Alumni Associa- 
tion of Roosevelt Hospital, the Johns Hopkins Residents' 
Association, the Omega Society of the College of Physicians 
and Surgeons, the New England Society, and the New York 
Athletic Club. He was the author of "Chemistry and Phy- 
sics" and a "Compendium of Anatomy," and of several 
valuable monographs on anatomical subjects. His death 
occurred at Brattleboro, Vermont, on April 21, 1901, after 
an illness of several months which was largely the result of 
ceaseless devotion to his profession. He was a member of 
the Methodist Church. 

On November 25, 1891, he married Marian L. Turner, 
daughter of A. M. Turner, cashier of the Union Mining 
Company of Mount Savage, Maryland. Two daughters 
were born to him: Marian, on May 13, 1896, and Dorothy, 
on February 27, 1898. 

He was quiet in manner, thoughtful and conscientious in 
all his conduct. Enthusiastically devoted to his professional 
work, he found little time for recreation, yet his sense of

whence — it is doubtful. I am of the belief that both can be 
traced to England, but I cannot prove it. My ancestor 
John Bronson was one of the original eight settlers of 
Waterbury, coming from Farmington." Bronson's mother 
was born on September 27, 1823, in Norfolk, Connecticut. 
She lived in Norfolk until her marriage, and died in Upper 
Montclair, New Jersey, on December 28, 1906. Her father 
was Amos Baldwin of Watertown and Norfolk, Connecti- 
cut, and her mother was Elizabeth Bryan of Prospect and 
Waterbury. 

Bronson was born on July 3, i860, in Waterbury, Con- 
necticut, and spent his early days there, attending the public 
grade and high schools till 1875, and then the English and 
Classical for three more years. He entered our class at the 
beginning of freshman year, and for the first year roomed 
alone on Chapel Street. In sophomore year he had a room 
in Farnam with Lowe, in junior year in North College with 
W. Anderson, '84, now dead, and in senior year in Farnam 
with Anderson again. He indulged in athletic sports, such 
as walking, running, baseball, and football. 

Bronson received an LL.B. from the Yale Law School 
in 1884, and he has confined himself closely to the practice 
of law in his native city of Waterbury. He writes : 

"In January, 1885, Mr. George E. Terry, one of the old 
lawyers, a man of high standing, who had been for years 
associated with Kellogg's father, as Kellogg & Terry, but 
who had been alone then for four years, asked me to come 
with him, which I did with great suddenness and despatch. 
Mr. Terry behaved himself very well, and I took him into 
partnership on the 1st of July, 1888, under the firm name 
of Terry & Bronson. That partnership continued until the 
middle of January, 1901. Mr. Terry meantime, with in- 
creasing age, had become subject to certain physical infirmi- 
ties, and under his doctor's orders he stopped short. 

"I carried on the business, and in 1906, July 1, took into 



BIOGRAPHIES 

partnership with myself Mr. Lawrence L. Lewis, who had 
been in my office for several years practising law. The rela- 
tion then assumed still continues, and I hope will. 

"My practice has been of a corporation and commercial 
nature, and I have been also largely interested in real estate 
practice. Perhaps I do more corporation work than any- 
thing else. 

"I have been moderately successful, with no serious set- 
backs. The office has all the practice that it can well attend 
to, but beyond that I don't know that it is necessary or worth 
while to say further. My health has been fairly good, by 
virtue of the fact that I have taken pretty good care of it, 
notwithstanding the fact that I am worked about to the 
limit, and have been for many years. 

"Beyond golf, of recent years I have had no regular exer- 
cise except in the saddle. 

"I have been interested for two years back in the promo- 
tion and construction of a street railway, fifteen miles across 
country. It will be finished in the course of the next year, 
but from that I have resigned all connection. 

"I have two boys. They both say they are going to Yale, 
of course. The younger one, aged ten, can with difficulty 
abide the sight of a red scarf." 

Bronson belongs to the Waterbury Club, the Waterbury 
Golf Club (of which he has been president), the Yale Club 
of New York, the Waterbury Republican Club (he is a Re- 
publican), and the Waterbury Bar Association (of which he 
is treasurer) . 

Helen Adams Norton became Mrs. Nathaniel Richard- 
son Bronson in Brooklyn on March 26, 1889. She is a 
daughter of Henry Lott Norton and Julia Adams. On the 
father's side her ancestors were New Englanders, on the 
mother's side New York Dutch, living on the Hudson River. 
She had one uncle who was graduated at Yale, Wilfred 
Ernest Norton. The two boys who have been mentioned

brother, the Hon. Wallace Bruce, Yale 1867, and roomed 
throughout the course with Lewis in North Middle and 
Durfee. He won a freshman mathematical prize, composi- 
tion prizes in both terms of sophomore year, and at the 
Junior Exhibition he divided the first prize with Storrs. He 
was an editor of the Lit and one of the Townsend speakers. 
His societies were Gamma Xu, Eta Phi, Delta Kappa Epsi- 
lon, Scroll and Key, and Phi Beta Kappa. 

The year after graduation he was connected with the 
Bryant Literary Union of New York City, and then spent a 
year in study in Germany and in European travel. On his 
return from abroad he taught in the Albany Academy at 
Albany, New York, and thereafter was for twenty-one years 
instructor in modern languages in Williston Seminary. He 
visited Europe repeatedly during that time, spending sum- 
mers in France, Holland, England, Germany, Switzerland, 
and the Austrian Tyrol. He was beloved by a great number 
who were students in his classes in successive years, and was 
much esteemed by the townspeople. He was for a number 
of years warden of St. Philip's Protestant Episcopal Church. 
He received the degree of M.A. from Yale in 1888. Bruce 
had not been in good health for several years, and died of 
appendicitis at his home in Easthampton on June 2, 1906, 
at the age of forty-eight. 

On April 3, 1883, at New Haven, Connecticut, he mar- 
ried Mary Emily Skinner, daughter of Franklin Skinner and 
Eliza Perry. He had one son, Donald, born on July 23, 
1884, at Newtonville, Massachusetts, who was graduated 
from Yale in the class of 1906.

Ireland, to which place the family had removed from Scot- 
land. Campbell's early education was at Washington Uni- 
versity, St. Louis, where he held a high place in his class and 
was very highly regarded by his instructors; but most of his 
education was under the personal attention of his mother, 
who took a very great pride in all his work, and with whom 
he was on the closest terms of intimacy. He roomed with 
French; during sophomore year in South Middle and during 
junior and senior years in Durfee. As an undergraduate 
he was a member of Delta Kappa, Eta Phi, Psi Upsilon, and 
Skull and Bones. 

He remained at Yale for a year after graduation, study- 



BIOGRAPHIES 

ing in the Graduate Department; and in July, 1883, he went 
abroad on an extended tour, from which he returned in the 
spring of 1885. In the succeeding autumn he entered the 
Law School of Harvard University, from which he was grad- 
uated in 1888. After this he went abroad again, and while 
living in Paris with his brothers had a very severe attack of 
the grippe in January, 1890. This was followed by conges- 
tion of the lungs and pneumonia, and he lingered on the 
verge of death for several months. He then rallied a little 
from the extreme prostration, but only to experience a fatal 
relapse, attended with great suffering. He died in Paris on 
July I3> 189°- 

His life was remarkable for its modesty, its tenderness 
and gentleness, for its chivalry and integrity; indeed, for all 
that makes the true gentleman. Princely generosity, a sym- 
pathetic heart, painstaking consideration for the feelings of 
others, loyalty to truth, and self-sacrificing fidelity to hard 
duties — these were some of his characteristics that won for 
him our love and respect. 



* David Anderson Chenault entered '82 at the begin- 
ning of sophomore year and roomed with Bennett, the first 
year on George Street, junior year in Farnam, and senior 
year in Durfee. He was a member of Psi Upsilon. After 
graduation he was for two years a member of the firm of 
Isaac Brinker & Company, commission merchants and 
wholesale fruit and produce dealers, at Denver, Colorado. 
He w r as afterward at his home at White Hall, Kentucky, 
for a year, engaged in farming, and for three years was in 
the live-stock business, together with farming, at De Graff,

William Churchill is the son of William Churchill and 
Sarah Jane (Starkweather) Churchill. He is of English 
descent on both sides. The paternal ancestors came from 
Devonshire, England, in 1632, and settled at Plymouth, 
Massachusetts. Those on his mother's side were a part of 
the New Haven Colony. William Churchill of Boston and 
Mary Myrick Hayden of Nantucket were his grandparents, 
and his father w r as a merchant importer of porcelains. The 
father was born on February 4, 1825, in Boston, was edu-

cated in English public schools, spent most of his life in New 
York City and abroad, and died In Montclair, New Jersey, 
on June 7, 1873. His wife was the daughter of the Rev. 




William Churchill 



John Starkweather and Mercy Hubbard of Middletown, 
Connecticut, born on January 1, 1835, in Bristol, Rhode 
Island. 

Churchill was born on October 5, 1859, in Brooklyn, and 
divided his youthful days between that city and Montclair, 
New Jersey. He was graduated from the Montclair High 
School in 1877. He entered Yale with the class of '8i and 
went as far as Christmas of sophomore year, but had to 
leave college on account of grave illness. After a long sea 
voyage he resumed work with our class at the beginning 
of sophomore year. Guernsey was his roommate while he 
was with '81, but for the rest of his course he roomed by

himself in North Middle. He contributed to the Lit, the 
Record, and the Courant, was a member of the ivy com- 
mittee at graduation, and belonged to the Yale Society of 
Natural History. 

Churchill has made a reputation for himself as a news- 
paper writer, an explorer, and a linguist. For a year after 
graduation he taught school in Indianapolis. Then he went 
to Australia and the South Sea Islands. Upon his return 
to America he entered journalism in San Francisco. For 
two years he was librarian in the Academy of Sciences in 
that city, and while holding that position he delivered a 
course of lectures on the people of the South Pacific, their 
languages, customs, etc. He then came East and contrib- 
uted to various magazines. For a time he was in the Signal 
Service Bureau in Washington. In 1891 he became an edi- 
tor of the Brooklyn Times, occupying that position until 
June, 1896, when President Cleveland appointed him con- 
sul-general to Samoa. When President McKinley appointed 
his successor in 1898, he returned to this country. He is the 
author of "A Princess of Fiji" (Dodd, Mead & Co., 1892), 
many scientific documents for the government, magazine 
articles and reviews, as well as a great quantity of edi- 
torials. At present he is engaged on the New York Sun. 
Philology had always attracted Churchill. His pursuit of 
it led to a wild life among wild men in remote savagery, but 
in the end he worked out a comprehension of the method 
of isolating speech that is being received with interest. 
Without going into the intimate details, his discovery 
amounts to "the dissection of the hitherto irreducible root, 
the segregation of the elemental sense of the few simple 
vowel sounds which have come to us from the animal cry, 
and the analysis of the discriminative selection of the co- 
efficient value of the consonantal modulants whereby the 
earliest type of man acquired a language." In prosecuting 
this research Churchill mastered about a hundred languages 



BIOGRAPHIES 

of the Pacific Ocean and Malay seas, collected a large mass 
of cosmopoietic myth from old savages, and prepared on 
the lines of comparative philology a dictionary of the 
Samoan language. His results are appearing at short in- 
tervals in philological journals and transactions of learned 
societies. The grammar of the Samoan language on which 
he is now engaged is to present proofs as to the beginning 
of human speech, and competent authorities here and abroad 
have said that he is about to contribute to philology a dis- 
covery as epochal as was the discovery of Sanskrit and 
the work of Whitney and Max Miiller. He is active in the 
Polynesian Society of New Zealand. His travels extended 
to every continent, but in the South Seas and Malaysia he 
has been an explorer and has been able to add to the maps. 

On August 14, 1899, m New York City, he married Llew- 
ella Pierce, daughter of Llewellyn Pierce and Catherine 
Spillane, and a relative of Franklin Pierce, a graduate of 
Bowdoin. 

His business address is the Sioi, 170 Nassau Street, New 
York City, and his residence is Fale'ula, 1874 East Twelfth 
Street, Brooklyn, New York. 



Stephen Merrell Clement is the son of Stephen Mal- 
lory Clement and Sarah Elizabeth (Leonard) Clement. 
Stephen Mallory Clement was born on February 26, 1825, 
in Manlius, Onondaga County, New York. He was the 
son of Frederick Clement and Olive Mallory. The Clement 
family is of English origin, coming from Coventry in the 
early days and settling in New England. On the maternal 
side Clement's ancestors w T ere also English, settling in 
Massachusetts. Two of the descendants, David H. Leonard 
and Anna Merrell, lived in Dewitt, New York, in the early

cerning my actions, viz., giving a library to Colchester, Con- 
necticut; being a Presbyterian elder; being a supporter of 
foreign missions; and being chairman of the advisory board

where he has spent most of his life, and is still living as a 
practising lawyer. He was graduated from the University 
of Georgia in 1854 and from the Harvard Law School in 
1859. His family was of Scotch origin, his ancestors com- 
ing to this country in 1747 and settling in Maryland. Cum- 
ming's mother was born on July 19, 1838, at Bridgeport,

Connecticut, and spent her early life in New York City. 
Her family was of English origin, her ancestors coming to 
this country in 1645 an< ^ settling at Fairfield, Connecticut. 
Many of Cumming's ancestors and near kinsmen have held 
important public positions as city mayors, territorial gov- 
ernors, etc. One of his ancestors was graduated from Yale, 
another from the University ol Georgia, and a third from 
West Point. 

Cumming was born on January 4, 1862, at Summerville, 
Richmond County, Georgia, and resided there before enter- 
ing college. He was prepared at private schools, and en- 
tered '82 at the beginning of freshman year. He roomed 
at first alone, but afterward with Cragin, during sophomore 
year in Old Chapel, and thereafter in Farnam. While an 
undergraduate he took a prize in French. 

After graduation he spent the summer holidays at Xarra- 
gansett Pier, and then returned to Augusta and entered upon 
the study of law in his father's office. He was admitted to 
practice in January, 1884, and since that time he has been 
actively engaged in professional work. He writes: 

"I took a small excursion into politics during a period 
covering five or six years, serving respectively as one of the 
governing body of the suburban village in which I reside, 
known as Summerville, and for a while as its executive 
officer. For two years I was a member of the lower house 
of the Georgia Assembly, and for two years was a member 
of the Georgia Senate. While this political experience was 
most interesting and useful, it had no great allurements for 
me, and I have made no further effort to fill any public 
offices. There have been no special incidents connected with 
my life. There has been simply the usual routine of an 
active practising attorney, interspersed with a fair amount 
of quiet pleasure-taking." 

From other sources it is learned that Cumming's profes- 
sional standing is very high, both from the standpoint of

character and ability. He has been in partnership with his 
father for a long time, and has represented the Georgia 
Railroad for years. In politics Cumming is a Democrat, 
and is a member of the Richmond Hussars. He is one of 
the governing board of the Country Club of Augusta, and 
a member of the Commercial Club of Augusta and of vari- 
ous social organizations. 

He married on November 27, 1889, at Summerville, 
Georgia, Mary G. Smith, the daughter of Charles Shaler 
Smith and Mary G. Gardner. Mrs. Cumming's family is 
of English origin. They have two children, one boy and 
one girl. 

His address is 204 Montgomery Building, Augusta,

thized with his ambitions and encouraged him In their at- 
tainment. Early in life he cherished the desire and hope of 
a career at Yale, and from his twelfth year steadily bent his 




George Edward Curtis 



energies to accomplish that ambition. His own efforts and 
his mother's self-denial enabled him to enter our class in 
1878 well prepared. He roomed the first year on Howe 
Street, the second in South Middle, and the last two with 
Titche in Farnam. At college he was a faithful student, and 
ranked well in all his work, but especially excelled in mathe- 
matics, in which he took a prize in senior year. He was a 
member of Gamma Nu. 

For a few months after receiving his degree he remained 
at his home in Birmingham, Connecticut, prosecuting his 
studies in his chosen work of mathematics. In 1883 he re- 
ceived an appointment under the chief signal officer in the

Weather Bureau at Washington. He continued his work in 
meteorology and atmospheric physics until 1887, when he 
accepted the professorship of mathematics in Washburn 
College, Topeka, Kansas. Subsequently he was connected 
with the Smithsonian Institution at Washington. His health 
forced him to move to Arizona, which he had already visited 
in the employ of the government, preparing a geological 
survey, and again as meteorologist of the Dyrenforth rain- 
making expedition. His health continued to fail, and in 
1895 he returned to Washington, where he died in January 
of that year. 

He received the degree of M.A. from Yale in June, 1887. 
He was an active member of the Philosophical Society of 
Washington, District of Columbia, and wrote a number of 
articles on scientific subjects. Numerous articles by him re- 
lating to meteorology have been published by the Signal 
Office, the American Journal of Science, the American 
Meteorological Journal, and other scientific periodicals. In 
1893 he edited a book entitled "Smithsonian Meteorological 
Tables," and the Century Company paid a high tribute to 
his attainments by engaging him to write the definitions of 
the meteorological terms in all but the first volume of the 
Century Dictionary. Short as was his career (he was but 
thirty-three years of age when he died), his achievements 
were considerable and gave great promise of distinction.

Stricken down so suddenly while in the enjoyment of perfect 
health and strength, his death came as a great shock to all 
his friends. He was one of the most conspicuous figures in 
our class both in athletics and socially, and he was the first, 
after graduation, to be taken from us. A tablet in his

Ely was born on August 12, 1859, in Chicago, Illinois. 
He lived in Chicago until 1866, and then in New York City. 
He attended the following schools: Charlier School from 
1866 to 1 87 1, Auction's School till 1873, Williston Semi- 
nary in 1874 and part of 1875, was in Europe till the latter 
part of 1875, and attended the Signers' School till 1877. 
He entered Yale in that year with the class of '8 1, but joined 
'82 at the beginning of junior year. He rowed on the Dun- 
ham crew, and was a member of Sigma Epsilon, Alpha 
Kappa, and Psi Upsilon. 

After graduation he entered the Columbia Law School 
in the class of 1884. During that time he studied in the

Foster, Yale '78. In December, 1885, he was admitted to 
the New York bar, and on January 1, 1886, he opened an 
office for the general practice of the law, and he has since 
been actively engaged in his profession. He has taken some

William Phelps Eno is the son of Amos Richards Eno 
and Lucy Jane (Phelps) Eno. Amos Richards Eno's an- 
cestors went from Valenciennes, France, to London in 1569, 
thence to Windsor, Connecticut, in 1648, and soon after- 
ward to Simsbury, Connecticut, where he was born on No- 
vember 1, 1 8 10. Early in life he moved to New York and 
was known as a successful dry-goods merchant and real 
estate owner. He died in New York on February 21, 1898. 
His father was Solomon Eno. His grandfather, Jonathan 
Eno, served in the Revolutionary War, as also did his great- 
uncle, Major-General Roger Eno. The name in France 
was spelled in various ways, namely, Henne, Hennet, Hai- 
nau, and Hainault. In England and America it has been

spelled at different times Enno, Enos, and Eno. The ances- 
tors of Eno's mother came from Tewkesbury, England, in 
1630, settled in Dorchester, Massachusetts, thence went to 




William Phelps Eno 



Windsor, Connecticut, and finally to Simsbury, Connecticut, 
where she was born on March 1, 1818. She died in New 
York on November 14, 1882. Her father was Elisha 
Phelps, of Yale 1800, and her grandfather was Major- 
General Noah Phelps, whose reconnaissance of Fort Ticon- 
deroga was followed by its capture. Her fifth great-grand- 
father was the Rev. Garsham Bulkley, of Harvard 1655, 
and her sixth great-grandfather was Charles Chauncey, sec- 
ond president of Harvard College. 

Eno was born in New York on June 3, 1858. He went 
to school in Paris and St. Germain in 1868-69. He at- 
tended a number of schools in New York City, one in New- 



BIOGRAPHIES 

burgh, New York, Williston Seminary in Easthampton, 
Massachusetts, and the Hopkins Grammar School in New 
Haven. He entered the class of 1 88 i at Yale with seven 
conditions which he passed oft, but voluntarily withdrew his 
papers and joined the class of 1882 the following Septem- 
ber. He was a member of the class crew, of the freshman 
class supper committee, floor manager of the junior prome- 
nade, leader and manager of the junior and senior germans, 
and gave considerable time to the reorganization of the 
Yale University Club. He was taken ill with scarlet fever 
just after the junior promenade and was out of college until 
May, when he returned and finished the year with his class, 
but did not return to college in senior year. He was a 
member of Delta Kappa, He Boule, Delta Kappa Epsilon, 
and Skull and Bones. 

In 1 88 1 he entered a New York bank to learn the busi- 
ness. From 1884 to 1898 he spent much of his time in his 
father's office, where he had unusual opportunities to gain a 
thorough knowledge of real estate in all its branches. About 
ten years after leaving college in 1881 the faculty sent Eno 
his degree of A.B., with enrolment in the class of 1882, in 
response to a petition signed by most of his classmates. 
About 1900 he received permission to erect an exact repro- 
duction of the old fence within the campus, to make up, as 
far as possible, for the irreparable loss of the original fence, 
which had been removed to permit the erection of Osborn 
Hall, and at the same time he provided a fund for new 
walks and other improvements on the campus. On the 
founding of the Yale Club in New York, Eno was elected 
to the council and intrusted with the adaptation of the first 
club-house. He was on the council for several years, was 
engaged on the financial plan that led to the new club-house 
on Forty-fourth Street, and was chairman of the building 
committee. The club-house was completed for the amount 
of the appropriation and within the promised time. He has

been present at the Yale-Harvard boat races at New Lon- 
don for the past ten years, where his yacht Aquilo has acted 
as judges' boat. On the death of his father, in 1898, he be- 
came one of the executors of his estate, which took three 
years to settle. He is largely interested in real estate, but 
for the past few years has not been active in business mat- 
ters, having devoted practically all his time to introducing 
and perfecting street traffic regulation in New York and 
other cities. He took the London practice of regulating 
traffic on the streets as a basis to start with, and introduced 
such extra or new things as seemed necessary to perfect the 
system. The rules now officially adopted in New York and 
partially or wholly in almost every city in the United States 
were compiled by him. In the autumn of 1909 he went to 
London and to Paris to study street traffic in both places. 
As one result, the authorities in London have signified their 
intention of adopting some of the New York regulations in 
the near future, and as another, the prefet of police of Paris, 
on December 1 last, put the New York regulations in opera- 
tion on the Rue de la Paix and has since extended them to 
many other streets, and the New York regulations have 
become the standing ones of the city of Paris. He has 
written many articles and pamphlets on street traffic regula- 
tion, civic transportation, and kindred subjects. In Sep- 
tember, 1909, he published a book entitled "Street Traffic 
Regulations." It has been given large circulation here and 
in Europe and is the only book on the subject. Eno belongs 
to the following clubs: Metropolitan, Cosmos, University, 
and Chevy Chase of Washington; University, Yale, City, 
New York Yacht, and Seawanhaka-Corinthian Yacht of 
New York; Boston of New Orleans, and Quinnipiack and 
Graduates' of New Haven. 

On April 4, 1883, in New Orleans, he married Alice 
Rathbone, daughter of Henry Alenson Rathbone, born in 
Hartford, Connecticut, of English descent, and Marie Ce-

origin, and located at Wethersfield, of which Foote's ances- 
tor was one of the first settlers and where he died in 1664. 
His mother's family was also of English ancestry, coming to 
this country in 1660 and settling at Madison, Connecticut. 
One of Foote's ancestors was a tutor and fellow of Yale in 
the middle of the eighteenth century, and was secretary of

School, entering '82 in September, 1878. While in college 
he took the Berkeley prize for Latin composition, a subject 
in which he early- displayed ability, and the teaching of which 
he has made his life-work. 

After graduation he taught school for a number of years 
in Portland, Oregon, and from 1884 to 1886 he held the 
Larned scholarship, taking a post-graduate course at Yale, 
from which he received the degree of M.A. in 1902. For 
eight years he was in charge of the Latin School at Atchi- 
son, Kansas, but in 1901 came to New York and took the 
examination for teachers of Latin in the high schools of 
that city. The result of the examination was evidence of 
his exceptional fitness for his work, as he was third in rank 
on the list of those passing. In 1902 he was appointed in- 
structor in Latin at the De Witt Clinton High School, a 
position which he still retains, having also taught French 
and Greek at intervals. 
He is unmarried.

Burnside Foster 



The Fosters came to this country in 1638 and settled at Ips- 
wich, Massachusetts. Alfred Dwight Foster, the grand- 
father of our classmate, lived in Worcester and married 
Lydia Styles. Dwight Foster, the father of Burnside, was a 
judge of the Massachusetts Supreme Court, and spent most 
of his life in Worcester and Boston. He was born in 
Worcester on December 13, 1828, and died in Boston in 1884.

the degree of LL.D. His wife was the daughter of Roger 
Sherman Baldwin of New Haven, one time governor of 
Connecticut, and Emily Perkins of Hartford, Connecticut. 
She was born on April 2, 1830, in New Haven. 



BIOGRAPHIES 

Foster was born on May 7, 1861, in Worcester, Massa- 
chusetts, and passed his boyhood in that city and Boston, 
attending the Boston Latin School, Hopkinson's Private 
School in Boston, and Phillips Academy, Andover, Massa- 
chusetts. He entered Yale with the class, roomed with 
Vought in sophomore year, and with Osborne in junior and 
senior years, was champion high kicker of the class, contrib- 
uted occasionally to the Lit, and belonged to Delta Kappa, 
He Boule, and Delta Kappa Epsilon. 

After graduation he studied for three years in the Har- 
vard Medical School, became an M.D. in June, 1885, with 
the highest hospital appointment in the class, and began on 
August 1, 1885, an eighteen months' service in the Massa- 
chusetts General Hospital, Boston. On leaving the hospital 
in February, 1887, he went to Europe and spent the re- 
mainder of the year studying in Vienna and Dublin. For 
the twenty and more years which have intervened since that 
time, he has been practising in St. Paul, varying the routine 
of his work by professional and editorial duties. He is 
professor of dermatology and lecturer on the history of 
medicine at the University of Minnesota, and editor of the 
St. Paul Medical Journal. He has published his lectures 
("A Course of Lectures on the History of Medicine and 
of the Medical Profession"), and is the author of nu- 
merous articles for medical journals. He has been presi- 
dent of the Ramsey County Medical Society, and is likewise 
a member of the Minnesota State Medical Society, the 
American Medical Association, the American Dermatologi- 
cal Association, the Minnesota Club of St. Paul, and the 
Town and Country Club of the same city. For two years he 
was a member of the St. Paul Library Board. In the sum- 
mer of 1896 Foster had a desperate encounter with some 
highwaymen at Wyoming, Minnesota, when he was hasten- 
ing from St. Paul to join his wife near that place in response 
to a telegram. Two men were killed in the fracas, and

Foster himself was beaten into insensibility. Bob Wilson, 
the assassin, was killed by a posse of citizens and officers, 
and his two accomplices were captured. In April, 1909, 
Foster delivered, by invitation, an address before the Asso- 
ciation of Life-Insurance Presidents, of New York City, 
entitled "A Suggestion Concerning the Increased Longevity 
of Life-Insurance Policy-Holders." In this address, which 
attracted wide attention not only among life-insurance men 
but in the newspaper press all over the country, he made a 
strong plea for enlisting the powerful organizations of life- 
insurance companies in the cause of preventive medicine, 
urging that anything which contributed to human longevity 
would be of financial advantage to the business of life- 
insurance. Several of the suggestions made in this ad- 
dress have already been adopted by some of the life-insur- 
ance companies. 

On January 1, 1894, Foster married Sophie Vernon 
Hammond, daughter of John Henry Hammond, a general 
in the Union army, and Sophie Wolfe, of English and Hu- 
guenot ancestry. There are three children: Harriet Burn- 
side, born on February 3, 1895 ; Elizabeth Hammond, born 
on March 5, 1899; and Roger Sherman, born on December 
13, 1901, all in St. Paul. "My life has been comfortable 
and happy," writes their father, "and I have been fairly 
successful in my profession." 

His business address is Lowry Arcade, and his residence 
is 117 Farrington Avenue, St. Paul, Minnesota.

Palmer of Boston and Mary Caldwell of Ipswich, Massa- 
chusetts. She died in Braintree on December 25, 1891. 
Her ancestors came from England in the Fortune in 1621 
and settled at Duxbury, then a part of Plymouth, Massa- 
chusetts. Her brothers, Simeon and Horatio Palmer, were

School in 1876. After that he had a year at Adams Acad- 
emy, Quincy, Massachusetts, and another year at Thayer 
Academy, Braintree. In freshman year French roomed 
alone on York Street, in sophomore year in South Middle 
with Campbell, and in junior and senior years with Camp- 
bell in Durfee. He was a contributor to the Record in 
sophomore year, and in junior and senior years one of the 
editors. He was on the freshman class supper committee, 
fence orator in sophomore year, chairman of the junior 
promenade committee, and one of the class historians. He 
won the sophomore prize declamation. He belonged to 
Kappa Sigma Epsilon, Eta Phi, Psi Upsilon, and Skull and 
Bones, and to the University Club. 

For the first five years after graduation he taught Latin 
and French at the Thayer Academy, Braintree, Massachu- 
setts. He then studied law at the Boston University Law 
School, was admitted to the bar, went to Washington as 
clerk to the judges of the court of Alabama claims for one 
year, and then returned to Boston to practise law. He was 
nominated by both Republicans and Democrats in 1901, 
and was elected district attorney for the Southeastern Dis- 
trict of Massachusetts. Reelected as the candidate of both 
parties in 1904, he served until January, 1906, when he re- 
signed to accept the appointment, tendered him by President 
Roosevelt, of United States attorney for the District of 
Massachusetts, which office he now holds. 

He has gained for himself an enviable reputation as an 
advocate on account of his remarkable management, in asso- 
ciation with the Hon. James E. Cotter, his senior, of the 
defense of Thomas M. Bram, mate of the barkentine Her- 
bert Fuller, tried for murder on the high seas in October, 
1896, and argued on error before the Supreme Court of 
the United States, where the judgment of the Circuit Court 
against Bram was reversed. This was his first celebrated 
case and brought him into national prominence. The

strength of his power to convince jurors was later illus- 
trated when he secured the acquittal of Joseph E. Seery, 
indicted for murder in December, 1899, in Norfolk 
County, Massachusetts. He has also figured in many im- 
portant civil cases, and, several years ago, won additional 
prominence by his able presentation of the cause of the anti- 
vivisectionists before the Committee on Probate Chancery 
of the Massachusetts Legislature. This service was rendered 
for practically no remuneration, and as a contribution to 
the cause of humanity. 

He is president of the Randolph Savings Bank, of the 
Norfolk Bar Association, a member of the executive com- 
mittee of the Massachusetts State Bar Association, a trustee 
of the Thayer Academy, and governor of the Massachusetts

outh, the Republican Club of Massachusetts, the Massa- 
chusetts Club, and the Norfolk Club. 

He married on December 13, 1887, in Randolph, Massa- 
chusetts, Elisabeth Ambrose Wales, daughter of George W. 
Wales and Clara Ambrose. Mrs. French's great-grand- 
father, Jonathan Wales, and her grandfather, Bradford 
L. Wales, were physicians and surgeons of eminence in 
southeastern Massachusetts. French has two children:

that firm until his death, which occurred July 14, 1886. For 
some three months he had been in uncertain health, and five 
weeks before his death he suffered— without premonition— 
from a hemorrhage of the lungs. 

He was of a quiet, earnest disposition, commanding the 
respect of all and the love of those who knew him best. His 
strength of character and his natural abilities were such that, 
had they been coupled with a strong physique, he would 
surely have attained a position in the world that would have 
been an honor to the class.

navy, and participated in the battle of Manila under Dewey, 
and since 1900 he has been in the government employ in the 
Census Bureau. His work involves considerable travel. 
He writes: 

"I had the honor to belong to the fleet under Admiral 
Dewey and was with him on May 1 , 1898, when we whipped 
the Spaniards in Manila Bay, and remained in the Philip- 
pines throughout the war and afterward until September 2, 
1899. So far as I know, I am the only Yale man of any 
class who took part in those stirring events. With the ex- 
ception of the above, my life has been absolutely uneventful." 

He was married on November 7, 1888, in New Orleans, 
and the bride was Lucy Wiltz, daughter of Louis Alfred 
Wiltz and Michail Bienvenu. Mrs. Gardes is of a pure 
Creole family. The four children are: Alfred Wiltz, born 
on August 22, 1 890, in New Orleans ; Arthur Hutchins, born 
on November 2, 1 891, in the same city; George Washburn, 
born on December 31, 1900, in Norfolk, Virginia; and

junior and senior years he roomed with Barbour, first in 
North, and afterward in Farnam Hall. He was a member 
of Gamma Nu, Psi Upsilon, Hare and Hounds Club, and 
Natural History Society. 

After leaving Yale he entered the Harvard Medical 
School, and was graduated from there with the degree of 
M.D. in 1886, a member of the last class which received 
instruction from Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes. He then 
spent eighteen months at the Boston City Hospital, and in 
January, 1887, went home to New London, Connecticut, 
and settled down to the practice of medicine. He has re- 
mained in New London ever since. He writes: 

"The round of professional duties in a small city, how- 
ever important and absorbing to those immediately con- 
cerned, affords little of interest for a narrative. Routine 
professional duties, though generally arduous and exacting, 
have yet left some time which could be devoted to outside 
interests." 

Graves has been for many years one of the trustees of 
the Bulkeley School, and is also one of the trustees of the 
New London Public Library. He is also an officer in the 
Manwaring Memorial Hospital. His travels have been 
limited to various trips in different parts of this country, but 
the larger part of his leisure has been given to the study of 
the various natural sciences. He is the author of many arti- 
cles on medical and scientific topics published in various 
magazines, and is a member of the American Medical Asso- 
ciation, the New London County Medical Association, the 
New London Medical Society, the Connecticut Medical 
Society, the New England Botanical Club, the Connecticut 
Botanical Society, and the New London County Historical

Haven. Trinity gave him an M.A., and later, in recogni- 
tion of his ability as a lawyer and his services as trea- 
surer of the college, an LL.D. His death occurred at 
Dansville, New York, on April 12, 1906. The Graves 
ancestors settled in Hartford, Connecticut, sometime pre- 
vious to 1645. Graves' mother was the daughter of 
Ephraim Buttrick of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Mary 
King of Halifax, Nova Scotia. She was born on June 20, 
1829, in Cambridge, and spent her early life there. Her 
ancestors settled in Concord, Massachusetts, in 1635. 
Among them was Major Simon Willard, one of the founders 
of Concord, Massachusetts, and one of the most distin- 
guished men in the military and civil life of colonial days. 
Another ancestor, Samuel Buttrick, participated in the bat- 
tle of Concord Bridge, where his brother, Major John But- 
trick, gave the command that opened the Revolutionary 
War. Ephraim Buttrick was graduated from Harvard in

Gallup and Anna Stanton Billings of Ledyard; and her an- 
cestors came over from Dorsetshire, England, in 1630 to 
settle at Boston and at Monumental Island, Massachusetts. 
The Rev. Leverett G. Griggs of Bristol, Connecticut, a 
great-uncle of our classmate, was a graduate of Yale in the 
class of 1829, as were several cousins and uncles of the 
Gallup, Williams, and Dimock families. Henry F. Dimock, 
of Yale 1863, now of New York, is a cousin of Griggs' 
father. Both his parents are living with him in Tacoma, 
Washington. 

Griggs was born on February 27, 1861, in St. Paul, 
Minnesota. The following year he went with his parents to 
Chaska, where he was in the Moravian School for a brief 
time. In 1866 he moved back to St. Paul, and there at- 
tended grammar school and high school, with private in- 
struction in the classics, until he was ready to enter Yale 
with us in September, 1878. His brother, C. M. Griggs, 
was his roommate during the first three years of the course, 
and as a senior he roomed with Hine of '85. The hare-

the matter of buying land, examining titles, securing fran- 
chises, and trying condemnation suits; and he has also made 
something of a specialty of corporation law, being attorney 
for a large number of manufacturing, mercantile, and bank- 
ing corporations. Since 1888 he has been trustee and at- 
torney of the St. Paul & Tacoma Lumber Company, which 
is in the lumber-manufacturing and coal-mining business. 
An address before the State Bar Association of Washing-

life there for two years was marked especially by his earnest- 
ness in Christian work, and while thus engaged he decided 
upon the ministry as his vocation. The summer of 1885 was 
spent in Europe, tramping Wales and Switzerland. That 
fall he entered Union Theological Seminary, New York, and 
was graduated in 1888. He was licensed to preach by the 
Presbytery of Lackawanna, at Honesdale, Pennsylvania, 
and although urged to accept a pastorate in New York 
City, he chose a less conspicuous position, and accepted 
a call to the Church of the Covenant in Buffalo. A ministry 
full of promise was hardly begun when it was suddenly 
ended. Diabetes manifested itself, and on November 12 he 
preached his farewell sermon. He went abroad at once, to 
Carlsbad, and then to Cannes, and returned somewhat en- 
couraged in April, 1890. After alternations of compara- 
tive strength and feebleness he was attacked with the grippe 
in January, 1892, and died at Mansfield, Ohio, on March 13 
of that year. 

On June 17, 1888, he married Sarah Lord Avery of 
Mansfield, Ohio. They had one son, Avery Chapman 
Hand, born on April 27, 1889, at Cannes. 

Years have passed — we have not forgotten him, and we

Mrs. Hawkes was born in Vermont in 1826, and died in 
New York City on May 28, 1906. Her family was also of 
English origin, having come to this country and settled at 
Three Rivers, Canada, early in the last century. 

Hawkes was born on April 24, 1859, at Portland, Maine, 
and lived there until 1875, when he moved to New Haven 
with his family, and prepared for Yale at the Hopkins 
Grammar School, entering college first with the class of '81, 
and joining '82 in junior year. He was a member of Delta 
Kappa. 

After graduation he entered the Yale Law School, and 
took the degree of LL.B. in 1883. He then settled in To- 
peka, Kansas, where he practised law until the fall of 1886, 
when he returned to New Haven and took the graduate 
course at the Yale Law School, receiving the degree of 
M.L. in 1887. He was admitted to the bar in Connecticut 
and also in Kansas in 1883, and in New York in 1890, about 
which time he settled in New York City, where he has since 
remained practising his profession. He is a Republican, 
and writes that he "has been working hard and occasionally 
having a little fun." 

On January 21, 1890, in New York City, he married 
Julia A. Burrell. They have no children. 

His business address is 256 Broadway, New York City, 
and his residence is 540 West One Hundred and Twelfth

came from England in 1636 and settled in Massachusetts. 
Hebard's mother was the daughter of Samuel Case and 
Euphemia Case of Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania. In the 




Charles Samuel Hebard 



Hebard connection, Alfred Hebard, a great-uncle, Albert 
Hebard and Daniel Hebard, uncles, and Daniel Hebard, a 
brother, were Yale graduates. 

Hebard was born in Tobyhanna on December 6, i860,

Theodore Holland is the son of Josiah Gilbert Holland 
and Elizabeth Luna (Chapin) Holland. Holland's father 
was of English origin. His mother belonged to the Spring- 
field Chapins, who were of English and Huguenot ancestry. 
The Holland ancestors are believed to have come over from 
London in 1630. They settled in the Plymouth Colony, and 
afterward at Watertown, Massachusetts. Holland's grand- 
parents were Harrison Holland of Belchertown, Massachu- 
setts, and Anna Gilbert of Hebron, Connecticut. Their 
son, our classmate's father, was born on July 24, 18 19, at 
Belchertown. He was a graduate of the Berkshire Medical 
College, Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and wrote several books 
and many poems. He was one of the editors of the Spring- 
field Republican, helped found Scribner's Magazine (which 
became the Century), and was its editor up to the time of

his death, which occurred on October 12, 1881, in New 
York City. Holland's mother was born on July 3, 1825, in 
Springfield, Massachusetts, a daughter of Whitfield Chapin. 





Theodore Holland 



She died on April 26, 1896, in South Orange, New Jersey. 
The Chapin ancestors came to this country in 1630 and set- 
tled at Roxbury, Massachusetts. They were among the 
early settlers of Springfield. "Deacon Samuel" Chapin was 
honored by a statue in that city. 

Holland was born on December 7, 1859, at Springfield. 
He made his home in that city until 1871, when his father 
moved to New York City. Two years of his boyhood he 
spent in Europe (1868-69), visiting England, Scotland, 
France, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. He was edu- 
cated at Monsieur Paulmier's school in Lausanne, Switzer- 
land (1869), at " tne Gunnery" in Washington, Connecti-

cut, and at Williston Seminary, from the last of which he 
was graduated in 1878. For the first three years in college 
he roomed at Mrs. Lockwood's on Elm Street, and in senior 
year in Durfee with Hopkins. He belonged to no athletic 
teams, but was one of the first to organize a lawn-tennis 
club. He was a class historian, and a member of the Uni- 
versity Club, Delta Kappa, and Delta Kappa Epsilon. 

Of his later career he writes: 

"After graduation I enrolled myself as a law student in 
the Columbia Law School, New York, and entered the office 
of Messrs. Richards & Heald to combine practical with 
theoretical work, as was the requirement for a two years' 
course. In June, 1884, I passed my final examination and 
was admitted to the bar in New York. 

"During the following year I became interested in some 
patents for the manufacture of 'water-gas,' and became the 
secretary of a company that started out with great promise. 
Our career was cut short by losing a patent suit, and we 
were forced to retire gracefully from the business. 

"This occupied most of my time up to 1888. In that year 
I was seized with a sudden longing to follow the advice of 
Horace Greeley, and selected Denver as the objective point. 
I was delighted with the climate and people and decided to 
settle there. 

"The law never appealed to me. I lacked the elements 
that go to make a successful lawyer. Soon after reaching 
Denver I investigated a land scheme that some of my new- 
made friends were embarking on and went into it. The 
lands that we bought were located at Buena Vista, a very 
pretty mountain town, lying in the Arkansas valley at the 
foot of the 'College Peaks' — Mounts Yale, Harvard, and 
Princeton. I resided for some time in Buena Vista. Na- 
ture has always appealed to me, but after studying the situ- 
ation I decided that man cannot live on scenery, and sold 
out my holdings to advantage and returned to Denver.

BIOGRAPHIES 

"In 1 89 1 I married Florence Olmsted Ward, daughter 
of the Hon. Jasper D. Ward, and I never did a better thing. 
I thought so then, and after sixteen years I think so still. 
Judge Ward and I mined together for some time, but with- 
out success. We were among the early ones to exploit Crip- 
ple Creek in a small way. That was in 1893. You couldn't 
go into camp in a Pullman car then, but had a long pull over 
the mountains in an old 'Concord' or a mud wagon behind 
six. It was an interesting trip with Keno on the box, but it 
was cold in winter. I once had the pleasure of a trip down 
the side of a mountain, six horses and all, when we slipped 
off the road in turning out for an ore-wagon in a snow- 
storm. I have been knocked unconscious by a windlass 
handle. I have been bucked off into the dry bed of a moun- 
tain creek, and I think there are some rocks still embedded 
in my back. These are trivial matters, but go to show some 
of the incidents of a life not wholly free from variety. 

"There were born to me twin daughters on April 15, 1892. 
November 16, 1900, the boy arrived. We named him Jo- 
siah Gilbert Holland after his grandfather. I hope to see 
him a Yale man. 

"A good many trials beset me at this time. My daughter 
Elizabeth succumbed to pneumonia on April 25, 1901, and 
in 1902 I suffered a severe breakdown with nervous pros- 
tration, from which I did not recover for nearly two years. 
Finding that the confinement of a law office would not do, 
I took up real estate. I have been in that business since, 
and was, for a time, connected with the Eden Irrigation & 
Land Company, a corporation operating under the Carey 
Act in western Wyoming. I am now doing a general real 
estate and investment business. I find Denver a delightful 
place to live in, but regret that it is so far away from old 
friends and associations." 

Holland was originally a Presbyterian, but joined the 
Episcopal Church in 1896 and has been a vestryman in St.

He was married on June 3, 1891, at Denver, to Florence 
Olmsted Ward, daughter of Jasper D. Ward and Emma J. 
Raworth. The Wards and the Raworths were both of 
English origin, the parents of Emma Raworth coming from 
England direct. The Hollands have had three children: 
Elizabeth and Barbara, twins, born on April 15, 1892, in 
Denver, and Josiah Gilbert, born on November 16, 1900, 
in the same city. Elizabeth died on April 25, 1901.

in 1877. He entered '81, but joined '82 in freshman year. 
Throughout his college course he roomed with Holland, 
first at 155 Elm Street and afterward in Durfee. For the 
entire course of four years Hopkins played first base on the 
university nine, and filled that position probably with greater 
expertness than any man who has ever stood on that bag 
for Yale before or since. He was a member of the Univer- 
sity Club, Delta Kappa, He Boule, Delta Kappa Epsilon, 
and Scroll and Key. 

After graduation Hopkins was engaged for a while in

deputed as the chief commissioner to inquire into the cause 
of the Niu-chuang massacre, which was causing trouble with 
France, and he managed to avert the danger of a serious 
breach and bring the affair to a peaceful conclusion. His 
creditable handling of that case brought him the promotion 
to the directorship of the Tientsin-Chinkiang Railway, with 
the power to raise funds for the construction of the proposed 
line. Before he was fairly launched on this work he was 
nominated to be Minister to the United States, but declined

along with his brothers, into the care of his father's busi- 
ness. He is now actively engaged in the management of 
Jonas Long's Sons' chain of department stores, and is a 
director of the Luzerne County Trust Company. Long has

scended from Joseph Loomis, who came from Braintree, 
England, in 1638, and after a year in Boston settled in 
Windsor, Connecticut. Our classmate's grandparents in 
this line were John Wells Loomis of Suffield, Connecticut, 
and Eliza Whitney of Huntington, Massachusetts. His 
father was born on June 24, 1832, in Southwick, Massachu- 
setts, and lived most of his life in Suffield, attending Mr. 
Bird's School in Hartford in his youth. He was a merchant 
and manufacturer, and died on February 10, 1903. Loom- 
is' mother was born on June 6, 1836, in Suffield, the daugh- 
ter of Daniel W. Norton and Mindwell Pease. Her family

came from Bedfordshire, England, in 1633, and settled at 
Ipswich, Massachusetts. 

Loomis was horn on November 12, 1861, in Suffield. At 
the age of twelve he entered the Connecticut Literary Insti- 
tution, from which he was graduated as valedictorian in 
1878. During his college course he roomed at home with his 
parents. He was a member of Delta Kappa. 

The theory and practice of law had been a hobby with him 
in college to the extent of actually impelling his going to the 
law courts in his spare moments and following the cases. 
Consequently it was no surprise to his friends when, after 
being graduated from Yale, he entered the Law School and 
was graduated in 1884 an LL.B. cum laude. Meantime, 
from 1883 he worked in the office of a New Haven lawyer, 
John \Y. Ailing, Yale '62. For three years after graduation 
he w r as with Mr. Ailing, and from 1887 to 1893 practised 
with Judge William B. Stoddard. In the fall of 1893 he 
opened an office of his own, and this he still maintains. He 
has been engaged in general civil practice, largely in cases 
involving insurance and employers' and common carriers' 
liability, and the law of trusts and estates. Always inter- 
ested in politics, he was elected assistant city clerk of New 
Haven in 1885 and 1886; and in the latter part of 1886, 
during the illness and after the death of his superior, he was 
acting city clerk. In 1903 he was appointed executive secre- 
tary to Governor Morris and held that office for two years. 
As such he did for the State Executive Department the work 
now done by the attorney-general, an office since created by 
the Legislature. 

Loomis was the compiler and editor of the New Haven 
City Year-Books in 1885 and 1886, and has published many 
legal papers and addresses. He is a member of the United 
Church (Congregational), a Democrat, and a member of 
the Graduates' Club, the New Haven Country Club, the 
Yale Club of New York, the General Staff Association of

Commerce. He is also president of the New Haven branch 
of the Sons of the American Revolution, president of the 
Congregational Club, president of a committee of citizens 
for the aid of New Haven charities, a director of the Organ- 
ized Charities, and secretary of the Citizens' Trust Com- 
pany. He visited Europe in 1887, the West Indies in 1906, 
and has traveled extensively in this country and Canada. 

On April 22, 1892, in New Haven, he married Catharine 
Canfield Northrop, daughter of Samuel Canfield Northrop 
and Caroline Tomlinson Bassett. Mrs. Loomis is descended 
from John Taylor, who came from England in the Rev. 
Ephraim Huit's company in 1639, and settled in Windsor, 
Connecticut. Among her ancestors were Dr. Amos Bassett, 
Yale 1784, a tutor and fellow of Yale; Dr. Nathaniel W. 
Taylor, Yale 1807, professor of theology in the Divinity 
School; and Dr. Martin Bull Bassett, Yale 1823, a Derby 
physician.

hospitals devoted to surgical cases only. In 1897 he built 
his present home in Newton and has since lived there, giving 
his entire time to the practice of medicine and service on the

of politics mostly, but that in 1901 and 1902, when he was 
nominated by both Republicans and Democrats, he simply 
had to serve on the Board of Aldermen of Newton for two 
terms. He was appointed city physician in 1909, which 
position he still retains. He is a member of the Massachu-

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF YALE '82 

1826, at West Hartford, the daughter of Samuel Whit- 
man of West Hartford and Elizabeth Howard of Coventry, 
Connecticut. Her ancestors came from Hertfordshire, 
England, in 1626, and settled at Weymouth, Massachu- 
setts. Morris sends the following additional genealogical 
data: 

"My father was a member of the Yale Corporation for 
about twenty years before his death in 1885. He was a 
descendant in a double line from the Rev. Thomas Hooker, 
founder of the Connecticut Colony at Hartford in 1637. 

"Of my mother's ancestors, Zechariah Whitman was 
graduated from Harvard in the class of 1668, and Samuel 
Whitman in the class of 1696. The latter was the third 
minister at Farmington, Connecticut, and a fellow of Yale 
College from 1724 to 1746. Another ancestor, the Rev. 
Solomon Stoddard of Northampton, Massachusetts, was 
first librarian of Harvard College, 1667-74, and a Harvard 
graduate in the class of 1662." 

Morris was born in West Hartford on August 19, i860, 
and lived his early years in that town, attending the public 
schools till the spring of 1874, when he entered the Hart- 
ford High School. There he was graduated in 1878. En- 
tering Yale with the class in freshman year, he roomed with 
Welch in North for a year, then as a sophomore with 
Parsons in South Middle, and junior and senior years with 
Scudder in Farnam. He rowed stroke in the Dunham

October, 1881, and he won the mile run in the spring of 
1882. He was on the ivy committee at graduation, and 
belonged to Psi Upsilon. 

After graduation Morris was a clerk in the pay depart- 
ment of the United States army till 1884, when he went to 
Johns Hopkins University and put in a year of graduate 
work in political science and history. In the spring of 
1885 he taught in the Washington High School, and in the 



BIOGRAPHIES 

spring of i 886 in the Montclair (New Jersey) High School. 
Again he was at Yale in 1886-87, and received the degree 
of M.A. at commencement for a thesis on "Internal Im- 
provements In Ohio, 1825-50," which was read before the 
American Historical Association's meeting in Washington 
in 1888, and published in the association's records for that 
year. Trinity College, Toronto, Canada, duplicated the 
M.A. in 1893. From 1887 to 1889 Morris was at the 
Berkeley Divinity School, at Middletown, Connecticut, be- 
coming a deacon in 1889 and a priest of the Episcopal 
Church in 1890. The summer of 1889 he spent traveling 
in England and Scotland. He is an independent in politics. 
Of his pastorate since entering the ministry he writes: 

"My life in the Church for eighteen years has been a 
roving one. I have served as curate, rector, and missionary 
in many parishes, in various parts of the country, in city, vil- 
lage, and town, and among all classes of people. 

"Like every rover, I have had the benefits of that sort 
of life, and have also had to pay the penalties. The penal- 
ties are obvious and sometimes poignant. But I have kept 
out of the ruts and escaped bondage. I enjoy life and I 
enjoy my work. Life appears to me as fresh and full of 
interest as it did twenty-five years ago." 

On October 24, 1904, at Amesbury, Massachusetts, he 
married Mary Josephine Burlingame, daughter of Charles 
Austin Burlingame and Katharine Maon. Mrs. Morris 
belongs to the Vermont branch of the Burlingame family. 

His address is 15 Dale Street, Newtonville, Massachu- 
setts.

was graduated in 1884, at which time he received the Town- 
send premium for writing and pronouncing the best oration. 
In January, 1885, soon after his admission to the bar, he 
was appointed executive secretary of the State of Connec- 
ticut, and served for two years as secretary to Governor 
Henry B. Harrison, Yale 1846. In 1887 he opened an 
office, but never engaged actively in the practice of his pro- 
fession. Most of his time u has been devoted to a quiet and 
uneventful life in New Haven." His trips abroad included 
one in 1880 to England, Scotland, Holland, Belgium, 
Germany, France, and Switzerland; and one in 1890 to the 
same countries, with Austria and Italy added. To him we 
owe the Triennial and Sexennial Class Records. 

He is unmarried. 

His address is 52 Trumbull Street, New Haven, Con- 
necticut. 



* Frank Edward Page was the son of Albert G. Page and 
Maria L. (Drummond) Page. His father was born June 
10, 1817, at Bath, Maine, where he passed most of his life 
as a business man, and where he died January 15, 1889. 
The family was of English origin, its ancestors having come 
to this country in the eighteenth century and settled at 
Haverhill, Massachusetts. Page's mother was born at 
Phippsburg, Maine, in 1821, and there spent her early life, 
dying at Bath, Maine, November, 1893. Her family was 
of Scotch-Irish origin, her ancestors having come to this 
country in 1728 and settled at Georgetown, Maine. One of 
Page's uncles was graduated from Bowdoin in 1852, and a 
brother was graduated from Yale in 1875. 

Our classmate was born at Bath, Maine, February 20, 
i860, and was educated in private and public schools, receiv- 
ing his final preparation at the high school of his native city. 
Entering Yale at the beginning of freshman year, he roomed

for the four full years with Bates, in North College during 
freshman year, and in Farnam during sophomore, junior, 
and senior years. He was a member of Kappa Sigma Epsi- 
lon and of Delta Kappa Epsilon. 




Frank Edward Page 



After leaving college Page went to Chicago and studied 
law in the office of Cornelius Van Schaack and others until 
he was admitted to practice in 1884. After his admission 
to the bar he was engaged in general practice continuously 
until his death. He wrote concerning his career : 

"It is deplorably lacking in interest, but such is the fate of 
man who lives out of the public eye. I have not inscribed 
my name high in the temple of fame, on the other hand it 
has not been engrossed in bankruptcy or criminal court pro- 
ceedings, except occasionally in a professional capacity. I 
arrived in Chicago with five dollars capital and could prob-

ably schedule that amount now, though there have been 
times in the past twenty-five years when I could not have 
made this proud boast." 

Early in 1908 he made a legal connection with one of the 
old-line life-insurance companies, which took a good deal of 
his time, and paid him well. The work was not all of a 
legal nature, but was in connection with the investment and 
reinvestment of real estate in Chicago and the immediate 
vicinity. 

Page died at his home in Chicago, May 25, 1909, of 
pneumonia, after a short illness. The Warren Avenue Con- 
gregational Church paper, in a notice of his death, said: 
"No one has ever been identified with the church who was 
so intimately connected with all the departments of its work 
and so helpful in all of them as was Mr. Page. He was con- 
nected with the church before its organization as an indepen- 
dent church twenty years ago, and when it was so organized 
he was elected church treasurer, a position which he held, 
with the exception of a short time, until his death. This 
position identified him with the board of trustees during all 
the life of the church, and his wise judgment and kindly 
counsel has had no little to do with guiding the affairs of the 
church in times of crisis." 

Page married, July 2, 1895, at Chicago, Illinois, Gertrude 
M. Swenson, the daughter of Bernard Swenson and An- 
toinette Swenson. Two of Mrs. Page's brothers and two of 
her sisters are graduates of colleges. They had no children.

on September 25, 1821. His parents were Laban Pardee 
of New Haven and Loey Bradley of East Haven, Con- 
necticut. He had the choice of going to Yale or learning a 
trade, and he learned the trade of saddler. For fifteen 
years (1842-57) he lived in Wetumpka, Alabama, and he 
died in New Haven on September 28, 1893. Pardee's 
mother was born on February 14, 1823, in New Haven, the 
daughter of James English and Nancy Griswold of that 
city. The English ancestors settled in Salem, Massachu- 
setts, in 1620, and came to New Haven in 1700. On his 
father's side Pardee is a descendant of the Rev. John 
Woodward, B.A., Harvard 1693. 

[3383 



BIOGRAPHIES 

Born in New Haven on September 16, i860, Pardee 
attended the Thomas Private School till 1871, the French 
School in 1872, and the Hopkins Grammar School till 1878, 
when he was prepared to enter Yale with our class. During 
the four years he roomed at home. He was a member of 
Delta Kappa and Psi Upsilon. 

The Yale Taw School gave him his TL.B. cum laude in 
1884, and he entered upon the practice of his profession. 
He immediately formed a partnership with James Protus 
Pigott, Yale '78. Mr. Pigott went to Congress in 1892, 
and Pardee set up for himself and as counsel for the town 
of New Haven. "The panic of 1893 put the Democratic 
party out of business, and I soon after resigned as town 
counsel." In 1896 he bolted the silver issue and became 
town chairman of the Gold Democrats, and later ran (un- 
successfully) as a gold candidate for mayor. During the 
next few years his business became entirely corporate. In 
1905 he ran for mayor of New Haven as a Democrat, and 
although he received very many Republican votes, he was 
badly beaten, partly as a punishment for his gold record, 
the only so-called Democratic paper in town bolting him. 
He was the author of the agitation which resulted in the 
last Constitutional Convention in Connecticut, and contrib- 
uted very much to bring about the reform representation 
in both the Republican and Democratic conventions. He 
was the author of the first Corrupt Practices Act and the 
first direct primary law in Connecticut, and the author of 
the Fourteen Town Bill. Pardee has been a partner in the 
firm of Marvin & Pardee, manufacturers of sewing-silks, 
since 1893 ; treasurer and director of the Jewett City Water 
Company since 1899; secretary and director of the New 
Canaan Water Company since 1897; treasurer and director 
of the Suffolk Gas & Electric Light Company, 1903-07 ; and 
treasurer and director of the Guilford-Chester Water Com- 
pany. He has published several political pamphlets and

in New Haven, and an alternate to the diocesan conventions. 
He belongs to the Quinnipiack Club of New Haven, and 
for fourteen years he was its secretary and is now its pres- 
ident, and he is also a charter member of the New Haven 
Country Club. He is vice-commodore of the New Haven 
Yacht Club, a member of the Waltonian Fishing Club, and 
the Lotos Club of New York City, and is also a member 
of the executive committee of the Connecticut Civil Service 
Reform Association, and of the Council of One Hundred 
of New Haven. He gave up the practice of the law July 
i, 1909. In 1900 he traveled in England; in 1902 in Italy; 
in 1904 in France and Switzerland; and in 1906 in Holland 
and Germany. 

Pardee is not married. 

His address is 581 George Street, New Haven, Con-

then at Cornell University, then at Illinois College, Jack- 
sonville, Illinois. In 1890 he became the principal of Mil- 
waukee Academy, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This institution 
was in existence for more than forty years, and was man- 
aged by Pratt with ability and success, both as to its financial 
condition, and as to its ability properly to equip students for 
college. Many of the best people in Milwaukee sent their 
sons to the academy, and it has been stated that most of the 
boys who have gone to Eastern colleges from that city were 
prepared by Pratt, w T ho is well liked both by the boys and 
by their parents. In July, 1909, Milwaukee Academy was 
merged into the German-English Academy, on the faculty of 
which institution Pratt accepted a leading position. Pratt

from England about the middle of the seventeenth century, 
and settled in Rhode Island. James Quackenbush Rice, Sr., 
was a graduate of Wesleyan University, Middletown, Con- 
necticut, and was later given the degree of M.A. by that 
university. At the outbreak of the Civil War he was con- 
ducting a large school in Goshen, Litchfield County, Con- 
necticut. He responded to Lincoln's call for volunteers, 
raised a company, and went out as captain with the Nine- 
teenth Regiment of Connecticut Volunteers, which regiment 
afterward became the Second Connecticut Heavy Artillery. 
He was killed at the battle of Opequon Creek, on the 19th 
of September, 1864, this action being sometimes known as

the second battle of Winchester. The family of Harriet E. 
Cook came to this country about the middle of the seven- 
teenth century from England, and settled in Wallingford, 
Connecticut, from which place they moved about 1735 to 
Goshen, Connecticut, when the so-called ''Western Lands" 
of the State of Connecticut were settled, and became the 
original settlers of that town. 

Rice was born at Goshen, Litchfield County, Connecticut, 
on the ioth of October, 18^9, and spent the early part of 
his life in that town. In 1 874 his mother removed to Hart- 
ford, Connecticut, and he prepared for college at the Hart-

college course with Martin Welles. He was a member of 
the senior promenade committee and prepared the class sta- 
tistics. His societies were Kappa Sigma Epsilon and Delta 
Kappa Epsilon. 

After graduation he entered the United States Patent 
Office, Washington, District of Columbia, as assistant ex- 
aminer early in 1883. He was promoted through the 
various grades of assistant examiner and was appointed 
principal examiner of the Patent Office in 1889, all of his 
promotions having been obtained by competitive examina- 
tions. At the same time he studied law, taking the degree 
of LL.B. at the Columbian University Law School, and was 
admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of the District of 
Columbia in 1884. He remained in the Patent Office until 
1898, and during most of his term as principal examiner 
was in charge of the class of inventions relating more par- 
ticularly to printing machinery and machinery for producing 
paper products. It is in connection with this class of ma- 
chinery, therefore, that he is best known to the patent pro- 
fession. He was also at various times, however, in charge 
of classes of invention relating to tobacco machinery, sew- 
ing-machines, and applied electricity. He resigned from

but in the fall of 1906 his health gave way, and he felt

u On the whole, life has run very smoothly and pleasantly 
with me, and I have no complaints to make. People have

Benjamin Huger Rutledge is the son of Benjamin H.

South Carolina, and spent most of his life at Charleston, 
South Carolina, where, after being graduated from Yale in 
the class of 1848, he practised law, and died on April 30,

general of the colony, and in the next generation the family 
were all lawyers, educated in England and members of 
Lincoln's Inns of Court. John Rutledge was the second 




Benjamin Huger Rutledge 

Chief Justice of the United States, and Edward Rutledge 
one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and 
High Chancellor of South Carolina for many years, dying in 
office after the Revolutionary period. Rutledge's father 
was a member of the Secession Convention of i860, and 
commanded a brigade in the army of the Confederate States 
during the Civil War. On his mother's side the ancestry of 
Rutledge is equally distinguished, all his maternal fore- 
fathers having been educated in England, one of them hav- 
ing been a royal governor, one president of the Continental 
Congress, one a signer of the Declaration of Independence, 
and one a governor of South Carolina and Minister from

the United States to Russia. All of these were graduates of 
English universities. 

Rutledge was born on September 4, 1861, at Charleston, 
South Carolina, and there resided prior to entering college. 
He prepared for Yale at the Virginia Military Institute at 
Lexington, Virginia, and entered '82 in junior year, during 
which he roomed alone on Elm Street. At that time the 
war period was not so distant that its sadly bitter experiences 
could be forgotten, and it would have taken more than a 
normal youth from the South to escape all feeling of rancor 
toward those of Northern blood. The Yale spirit, how- 
ever, works surely though subtly, and gradually the spirit of 
friendship supplanted that of hostility, and Rutledge became 
loved and loving. Rutledge came to Yale a type of the Old 
South, but was graduated with the spirit of the New South. 

Since that time he has been busily engaged in the practice 
of law in Charleston, his firm being Mordecai & Gadsden, 
Rutledge & Hagood. In 1885 he was elected captain of the 
Carolina Rifles, and in 1887 major commanding the Sec- 
ond Battalion, Fourth Brigade, South Carolina Volunteer 
Troops. In 1889 he was president of the City Democratic 
Convention, and was for a number of years a member of the 
State Legislature. He has for many years been vestryman 
of St. Michael's Episcopal Church, and is a member of the 
Charleston Club, the St. Cecilia Society, the State Bar Asso- 
ciation, and the Masonic Fraternity. 

Rutledge married on October 5, 1892, at Fletcher, North 
Carolina, Emma Craig Blake, daughter of Daniel Blake 
and Helen E. Craig. Mrs. Rutledge is a descendant of 
Benjamin Blake, a brother of Admiral Blake, and also of 
Sir Joseph Low, Proprietor of South Carolina, and the first 
governor thereof born in this country. They have six chil- 
dren, of whom one, the only boy, Benjamin H., Jr., born 
January 11, 1902, Rutledge designates as destined, D. V., 
for Yale 1924.

and was settled in Kent, Connecticut, and in Great Barring- 
ton, Massachusetts. His family was of English origin, hav- 
ing come to this country in 1635 and settled in Charlestown, 
Massachusetts. Sarah P. Lamson, Scudder's mother, was 
born November 24, 1840, at Derry, New Hampshire, and

Scudder was born August 7, i860, at Kent, Connecticut, 
and passed his early life at Kent and at Great Barrington, 
Massachusetts. He entered Williston Seminary in 1877, 
being graduated in 1878, and then entered '82 in the autumn

in junior and senior years with Morris in Farnam. 

Scudder trained for and participated in the quarter-mile 
race, receiving first prize in the college games. He was a 
class deacon and a member of Kappa Sigma Epsilon and 
Delta Kappa Epsilon. 

After graduating he took a course in chemistry and biol- 
ogy under Professor Chittenden in the Sheffield Scientific 
School, preparatory to the study of medicine. He received 
the degree of Ph.B. in 1883. Thereafter he attended the 
Harvard Medical School, from which he was graduated 
with the degree of M.D. in 1888. Immediately after leav-

articles upon surgery to leading medical journals. In 1900 
he published a book upon "The Treatment of Fractures," 
which received most favorable comments from medical crit- 
ics and is already in its sixth edition. He has a small camp

the seventeenth century to settle in Virginia. 

Shipley was born on August 31, 1 86 1 , in Cincinnati, Ohio, 
and spent his early days there and in Kendal, England. For 
one year he attended the Friends' School in Kendal, and was 
graduated from Chickering's Institute in June, 1878. He

Ralph Wadhams, Amherst 1889. 

The Shoemakers were Dutch, having come over from 
Holland in 1660. Shoemaker's grandfather, Elijah Shoe- 
maker, married Elizabeth Denison of Luzerne County, 
Pennsylvania. Lazarus Denison Shoemaker, their son, re- 
ceived the degree of M.A., studied law, and became an 
attorney in Wilkes-Barre. He was born on November 5, 
1 8 19, at Forty Fort, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, and 
died on September 10, 1893, in Wilkes-Barre. Shoemaker's 
mother was the daughter of Samuel Wadhams and Clorinda 
Starr Catlin of Plymouth, Pennsylvania. She was born on 
December 13, 1826, in Plymouth, and died in Wilkes-Barre 
on August 4, 1889. Her ancestors came from England and 
settled in Wethersfield, Connecticut. 

Shoemaker was born on September 28, 1859, in Wilkes- 
Barre, where his early years were spent in private schools, 
and on January 1, 1877, he entered the Hopkins Grammar 
School, from which he was graduated in 1878. He roomed 
with Parke in freshman year, in sophomore year alone in 
West Divinity, and as a junior and senior in Farnam with 
J. F. Allen. In senior year he was president of the Hare 
and Hounds Club, and at graduation was on the senior 
promenade committee. He was a member of Kappa Sigma 
Epsilon, Delta Kappa Epsilon, and a graduate member of 
Wolf's Head. 

Medicine attracted him, and he received an M.D. from 
the University of Pennsylvania in 1886, and he attained no 
little distinction in his profession. He was a surgeon on the 
staff of the Wilkes-Barre City Hospital, consulting surgeon 
of the Mercy Hospital, physician for the Home for Friend- 
less Children and the United Charities in Wilkes-Barre, 
trustee of the State Hospital for the Insane at Danville,

He was a Republican. His European travel included three 
trips, in 1876, 1902, and 1909. 

On November 27, 1889, in Scranton, Pennsylvania, he 
married the sister of his classmate, Cornelia W. Scranton, 
daughter of Joseph H. Scranton and Cornelia Walker. 

In the summer of 1909 Shoemaker traveled extensively in 
Europe with his wife and sister, and about the middle of 
September went to Bad Nauheim to try the baths. He 
died there September 27 from an acute attack of the 
heart trouble from which he had suffered for several years, 
a disease that he had known to be incurable from the 
beginning. Its progress had compelled his gradual retire- 
ment from the practice of his profession at a time when a 
more than local success and reputation were assured. He 
was enthusiastic in his work, intensely ambitious, and was 
making good in the largest sense. Few even of those who 
knew him well realized how bitter the disappointment was. 
To such as understood and watched the course of events, he 
gave a most wonderful exhibition of pluck and courage in a 
fight against overwhelming odds. He never complained or 
whimpered. Always a manly man, he was never more so 
than in these last years. He was a fellow of earnest con- 
victions, wide in his sympathies, lovable and loyal to his 
friends. One who knew him intimately from prep-school

days till the end can truthfully say he never heard him speak 
a cruel or even unkind word of any one. 

To him the loss of the success in his grasp seemed failure. 
Those who watched the way in which he played out as hard 
a game as can come to a man, how sweetly he accepted the 
inevitable and simply did the best he could as long as he 
could, felt it the most glorious success that could be achieved. 

He was a man who could ill be spared, and his going 
leaves a gap that for many can never be filled.

Although he did not join the class until the beginning of 
sophomore year, he at once took a prominent place, and was 
held in the very highest regard by all. 



Edward Vernon Silver and Lewis Mann Silver are the

in junior and senior years. 

After graduation he entered Sheffield Scientific School, 
where he studied chemistry and kindred subjects for one 
year. In the fall of 1883 he entered the College of Physi- 
cians and Surgeons, New York City, and was graduated 
with the class of '85. After spending two years in Roose- 
velt Hospital, he went to Vienna, where he studied for one 
year. Returning to New York, he engaged in general prac- 
tice and in hospital work. In 1891 he removed to Salt Lake 
City, where he has since resided. He writes : 

"The beautiful location of this city, the broadstreets and the 
lofty mountains round about, appealed to me so strongly that 
I decided to remain and build up a practice in the Mormon 
capital. Murphy was then living here. During the eighteen 
years' residence here I have not once regretted my choice 
of this Western home. My professional duties have not 
been allowed to absorb all of my time. Church and Sunday- 
school work have been given all of the time I could spare. 
This has not been difficult, as I have no office hours on Sun- 
day. As an elder in the Third Presbyterian Church and 
superintendent of the Sunday-school, and, later, elder in the 
First Presbyterian Church and superintendent of the Sunday- 
school, I have had a diversion from professional duties and 
cares which has proven very helpful. As president of the 
Young Men's Christian Association for a number of years, 
I have been able to help a work which appeals to me very 
strongly." 

Silver was a member of the Salt Lake City Board of 
Health from 1894 to 1896 inclusive, and is a visiting physi- 
cian to St. Mark's Hospital. He is also an examiner for 
the following insurance companies: the New York Life, the

Lewis Silver was born in Brooklyn on July 24, i860, and, 
like his twin brother, attended the Juvenile High School till 
1873, and the Polytechnic Institute from 1873 to 1875. He 
then, still with his brother, went to St. Johnsbury Academy in 
Vermont for two years, and afterward to Phillips Academy, 
Andover, Massachusetts. He entered Yale at the usual 
time, and roomed with his brother, as stated in our sketch of 
Edward. 

Having determined during his senior year to enter upon 
the study and practice of medicine, he matriculated at Belle- 
vue Medical College in New York City, and was graduated 
in March, 1885. After passing eighteen months in Bellevue 
Hospital he studied abroad in various cities and for six 
months was intern in the Frauenklinik, Munich, Germany, 
and then settled in New York, where he has since practised 
his profession. In 1889 he received an appointment as 
assistant demonstrator of anatomy in Bellevue Medical Col- 
lege. This he held until 1894. In 1891 he received ap- 
pointments as attending physician to the Demilt Dispensary, 
department of general medicine, and as attending physician 
to the Vanderbilt Clinic, department of children, which 
positions he still holds. 

"For the past five years," he writes, referring to the inter- 
val since the publication of our twenty-year book, "nothing 
very eventful has happened, and I have lived the even 
tenor of my way. Have enjoyed excellent health, which is 
something to be thankful for. In the summer of 1905 I 
took an extended trip through the West and along the Pa- 
cific coast and Alaska. Met Yale men all the way from the 
summits of White Pass, Alaska, to Los Angeles, California, 
and all glad to see some Yale friend from the East. At 
Seattle had a pleasant three days' visit with Clarence Smith 
at his summer home on Lake Washington. At Portland 
I called on Jefferds and found him but little changed, busy 
attending to the sick and afflicted. At Los Angeles I called

on Richards, but did not find him at home. The trip ended 
with a pleasant visit with my brother at Salt Lake."

mayor of Philadelphia in 1743, 1 75 1 , and 1760, and his 
son, Samuel Shoemaker, who was also mayor in 1769 and 
1 77 1. There are three children: Helen Mann, born on 
September 28, 1895; Margaret Bird, born on March 25, 
1897; and Henry Mann, born on November 6. 1904, all in 
New York City.

in Bellevue Hospital, and thereafter went to Seattle, Wash- 
ington, where he has since resided and practised his pro- 
fession, with a short interval of life at Elizabeth, New Jer- 
sey, and Washington, District of Columbia. He writes: 

"After my return to Seattle in 1902 I was active in agi- 
tating the establishing of a medical library. As a feature of 
this work, with the aid of another physician, I began publish- 
ing a medical journal, Northwest Medicine, of which I have 
been editor-in-chief. In the summer of 1909 it was adopted 
as the official journal of the State Medical Associations of 
Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. It was doubled in size 
and is now accepted by the medical profession as the estab- 
lished and recognized organ of the profession of the Pacific 
Northwest. I was elected editor-in-chief of the new journal." 

Besides articles for his own magazine, Smith has pub- 
lished "A Study of Uretero-Cystostomy" in the American

BIOGRAPHIES 

Snyder was born in Philadelphia on October 9, [852. He 
lived in Mechanicsville, Tacony, Holmesburg, Huntingdon 
Valley, Readingville, Somerton, Millersville, and several 
other towns in Pennsylvania. "Like gipsies, we moved 
about every two years," he writes. "From four years of 
age until eleven years I attended fourteen different public 
schools. At eleven years I was bound out to a farmer for 
my 'victuals and clothes' until I was sixteen years of age. 
On the farm I studied alone at nights." He was graduated 
from the Millersville State Normal School, and taught there 
for four years. Entering college with the class, he kept 
house with his aged mother and supported her during the 
four years of his course. He took a sophomore prize in 
English composition, and a junior prize in speaking. 

He was graduated from the Yale Theological School and 
ordained in the ministry in 1885, and has been a Congrega- 
tional clergyman since that time. He writes: 

''After graduation I took a parish at Northford, Connec- 
ticut, and also took a post-graduate course of one year in 
the Theological Seminary. I was called from Northford, 
in 1888, to Williamsburg, Massachusetts. There I remained 
nine years. From there I went to Weymouth, Massachu- 
setts, and served for four years. Then I stopped a year for 
rest from labor, but I supplied several pulpits in this State 
during that time. I preached on the island of Nantucket for 
three months during the summer vacation. After about 
seven years' service at Gilbertville, Massachusetts, I am 
entering upon the second year of my ministry at Chicopee, 
Massachusetts. 

"I delight in the work I have chosen. I should select the 
same profession if I had the privilege of choosing a second 
time. The gospel is to me 'the power of God unto salva- 
tion.' I think I get more good from it than my hearers do. 
Nevertheless, I feel that my labors have not been entirely 
devoid of fruit. Even a humble minister's influence, or any

other man's, if he be a Christian, cannot be measured by 
dollars or books." 

Politically Snyder is a Republican, with a lively sympathy 
for the Prohibition movement. 

On July 9, 1883, he married Maria Louise Bradley of 
New Haven, Connecticut, daughter of Charles Leeman 
Bradley and Myra Elizabeth Pratt. Mrs. Snyder is of

Glenn Snyder, prepared for college at the Weymouth 
(Massachusetts) High School and attended Boston Uni- 
versity. She married Gleason L. Archer, dean of Suffolk 
School of Law, Boston, Massachusetts, on October 6, 1906.

States Senator from Louisiana and a graduate of Yale in the 
class of '53. He was admitted to the bar in 1884, and has 
since practised his profession continuously in New Orleans. 
He writes : 

"My personal and professional history is without inci- 
dent of any kind that would particularly interest my fellow 
members of '82, keenly interesting and exciting as have been 
to me many of the legal contests in which I have partici- 
pated. While I must regretfully confess that I have done 
nothing that will add luster to the name of Yale, my life as 
lawyer and citizen has not been without success— success 
proportionate to my merits and efforts."

and settled in New York City. Vought's mother was born 
on October 16, 1827, and spent her early life in Brooklyn. 
She was the daughter of Hosea Webster of Brooklyn and 
Maria Buell of Litchfield, Connecticut. Her family was 
of English origin. 

Vought was born on May 14, i860, at Buffalo, where he 
lived until he went to Yale. He prepared for college at the 
State Normal School under Professor H. B. Buckham and 
Professor William B. Wright. He entered Yale with the 
class in September, 1878. In freshman year he roomed 
alone, in sophomore year with Van Kirk in South Middle, 
in junior year with Barnes and Foster in Durfee, and in 
senior year with Foster in Durfee. He was a member of 
Psi Upsilon and of the Yale University Club. 

Vought was in the banking business for twenty years. Fie 
writes : 

"From graduation to 1884 I was not actively engaged in 
business. After the death of my father, in 1882, I was con- 
nected with the Anchor Line Transit Company of Philadel- 
phia and Buffalo for one year. Then I became connected 
with the Manufacturers' and Traders' Bank of Buffalo as 
corresponding clerk. I remained with them in various ca- 
pacities for twenty years, finally ending as manager of the 
safe-deposit department. I resigned from that position in 
March, 1906. From March, 1906, to November, 1906, I 
tried to be a gentleman farmer on my place in East Aurora, 
with some degree of success. November, 1906, I went to 
Spring Hope, North Carolina, for the Montgomery Lum- 
ber Company of Buffalo, and stayed there until January, 
1907, when I went to Suffolk, Virginia, for the same com- 
pany. The F. F. V.'s and the climate proved my undoing, 
and I came back to East Aurora in March, 1907, with a few 
relics of the climate in the way of a cough, bronchitis, etc. 
March 25 I went with J. R. Heintz & Company, stock- 
brokers of Buffalo, and was with them until July 1, 1909.

Since then I have associated myself with my brother, J. H. 
Vought, Shell. 1893, in the manufacture and sale of the best 
shaking and dumping grate-bar on the market. It 's a 
dandy! My life for twenty-five years has been even and 
uneventful — no great successes; above all, no great sorrows, 
and not enough disappointments to hurt any one. I am 
scratching along, trying to be as good as I know how, with a 
good wife, three good boys, a contented spirit, and a hope 
that I shall be able to do my duty in that state of life to

the rank of major. Desiring a change, he associated himself 
with Patterson, a graduate of the Yale Law School and a 
former member of the Vale University Crew, and together 
they located in New Orleans, where they opened an office 
for the practice of law. Patterson felt the call of religious 
work, affiliated with the Salvation Army, and later became 
a minister of the gospel. Thus left alone, Waller wandered 
to Kansas, where he became associated with our classmate 
Sholes in the lumber business; but his eyes were fixed on the 
still farther West, and he moved to San Francisco. Wan- 
derlust claimed him, and feeling the call of the sea, he in- 
dulged in a whaling voyage of eight months up to and 
beyond Alaska. He returned to San Francisco and then to 
New London, and once more associated himself in the prac- 
tice of his profession with his father and brother. Together 
they inaugurated and were chiefly instrumental in the suc- 
cessful development of the New London seashore resort, 
Ocean Beach. At present he is practising law in New 
London. 

He has never married. 

His business address is 38 Main Street, and his residence

freshman year. In sophomore year he roomed with Phelps 
in South Middle, and in junior and senior years with Snell 
in Durfee. He was a member of Kappa Sigma Epsilon and 
Delta Kappa Epsilon. 

After graduation Weed was made secretary of the Cres- 
cent Watch Case Company, which was located at first in 
Chicago, Illinois, and subsequently in Brooklyn, New York. 
In 1887, however, he resigned his office in that company and 
returned to Chicago, and became the treasurer of the Silver 
Creek & Morris Coal Company, thus again coming into in- 
timate relations with his old roommate Snell, who was one 
of the organizers of that concern. In 1894 the Philadelphia 
& Reading Coal & Iron Company absorbed the Silver Creek 
& Morris Coal Company. Weed thereupon moved to Cali- 
fornia, where he purchased a ranch at Gardena, then eight 
miles south, but now included in the boundaries of Los 
Angeles City. His land has irrigation rights and is highly 
productive and of large present and larger prospective 
value, walnuts and alfalfa being his crop. While Weed and 
his family still reside on the ranch, he does not give its oper- 
ation his personal attention, as of recent years his time has 
been largely occupied with the duties connected with his 
official position, that of chief deputy county assessor of Los 
Angeles County. 

He married at Chicago, Illinois, on September 27, 1884, 
Emma Christie Ramsey, who was born in Knoxville, Ten- 
nessee, the daughter of Dr. Frank A. Ramsey and Ann M. 
Breck. Mrs. Weed's family is of Scotch and English de-

and was married on November 17, 1909. 

His address is Gardena, California.

Archibald Ashlev Welch 



was the son of Dr. Archibald Welch of Wethersfield, Con- 
necticut, and was born on January 1, 1821, at Mansfield, 
Connecticut, and died on November 25, 1870. Welch's 
mother was born on March 31, 1834, at Hartford, Connec- 
ticut, the daughter of Edward Goodwin and Elizabeth Amy 
Eewis, and died on August 16, 1904. James Welch of

Moses Cook Welch, Yale 1850, uncle; Lewis S. Welch, Yale 
1889, brother; Edward Goodwin, Yale 1823, grandfather; 
Sheldon Goodwin, Yale 1858, uncle. 

With four generations in Yale behind him, it was inevi- 
table that Welch, after being born in Hartford on October 
6, 1859, and educated in the Hartford schools, and gradu- 
ated from the Hartford High School in 1878, should enter 
the same college. During freshman year he roomed with 
Morris, and in sophomore and junior years with Emmet S. 
Williams. He was a member of the junior promenade com- 
mittee, of Delta Kappa, He Boule, and Delta Kappa Epsi- 
lon, the Freshman Glee Club, and the college chapel choir. 
He is also a graduate member of Wolf's Head. 

At the end of junior year he was obliged to leave college, 
and went immediately into the actuarial department of the 
Travelers' Insurance Company, expecting to take that sim- 
ply as a temporary makeshift until he should have the oppor- 
tunity to study law. He studied law, as well as the principles 
of actuarial science, during the first year. He remained 
with the Travelers' Insurance Company for nine years, and 
in July, 1900, he was appointed actuary of the Phoenix Mu- 
tual Life Insurance Company, which had just been made a 
purely mutual company by a special act of the Legislature. 
He became actuary and assistant secretary for the company 
in January, 1903, and second vice-president and actuary in 
December, 1904, which last offices he now holds. He was 
appointed chairman of a committee of actuaries from the 
various companies to appear at the public hearing in Albany 
on the so-called Armstrong Bill, which was the result of the 
investigations into life-insurance companies carried on by 
Mr. (now Justice) Hughes. As such chairman, he, with 
one other representative of life-insurance interests, was 
called in conference by the Armstrong Committee in its final

remodeling of the bill. Since that time he has been called 
in conference, both in Washington and elsewhere, on new- 
legislation incorporating advanced ideals for life-insurance. 
In the winter of 1890-91, by special permission of the 
faculty, he took the senior course, studying at home, and 
passed the regular examinations for the degree in June. 
[891, when the faculty gave him his diploma with enrol- 
ment in his old class of '82. He writes : 

"No work that 1 have engaged in since I left Xew Haven 
has given me greater return than that winter's study which 
placed me on the rolls of Yale '82.'' 

I lis only political work has been in connection with the 
high school, which is under the control of a bi-partizan com- 
mittee of five, elected annually. For ten years he has served 
on this committee, and for eight years has acted as its chair- 
man. Welch became a member of the Actuarial Society of 
America in 1890, was its treasurer for many years, and is 
now vice-president. He was one of the organizers of the 
course of insurance at Yale, and still continues to lecture in 
that department. He has contributed various articles to 
the publications of the Actuarial Society. In politics he is a 
Republican. He is secretary of the American School for the 
Deaf, has served as president of the Yale Alumni Associa- 
tion of Hartford, is president of the Hartford Philhar- 
monic Society, and a member of the Hartford Club, the 
Hartford Golf Club, the Country Club of Farmington, the 
Yale Club of New York, the Graduates' Club of New 
Haven, the University Club of Hartford, and various chari- 
table associations. In 1904 he made a trip through Eng- 
land, France, Germany, Switzerland, and Holland. 

On October 24, 1899, in Hartford, he married Ellen 
Bunce, daughter of James M. Bunce and Elizabeth Chester. 

His business address is Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance 
Company, and his residence is 21 Woodland Street, Hart- 
ford, Connecticut.

town in the practice of the law, and died there on May 15, 
1904. His parents were Roger W T elles and Electa Stanley, 
both of Newington. His family was of English origin, and 
came here in 1636 to settle in Hartford, Connecticut. 
Welles' mother was born on August 31, 1832, the daughter 
of Lemuel Aikin of Fairhaven, Massachusetts. The Aikin

ber of Sigma Epsilon. 

After graduation Welles received an appointment in Sep- 
tember, 1882, as examiner in the old war division of the 
Pension Office, Department of the Interior, at Washington. 
While there, he studied law at the Columbian University; 
received his LL.B. in 1884, and an M.L. in 1885; an d was 
admitted to the bar in 1886. In April of that year he re-

director of the Westfield Land & Improvement Company, 
a director of the Westfield Building and Loan Association 
and of the Westfield Trust Company, a member of various

Republican. His connection with the Title Guarantee & 
Trust Company continued until 1893, when he accepted an 
offer from the Bond & Mortgage Guarantee Company of 
New York to become its assistant secretary. Later he was 
elected treasurer and fourth vice-president. In April, 1906, 
on account of continued ill health, he resigned, and, taking his 
family with him, left for Europe. From Venice he wrote in 
1907 : "We expect to return to the United States in August. 
I plan then to go to the Pacific slope, where the climate 
will be more beneficial than that of New York." On return- 
ing to this country, however, he changed his plans, and he is 
now living in Hartford, Connecticut, where he is vice-presi-

Machine Company of Hartford. In a previous trip to 
Europe in 1900, Welles visited a half-dozen of the best- 
known countries of that continent, and in 1906-07 he re- 
visited them and others with his family. 

His wife is Mary Amelia Patton, daughter of William 
W. Patton, New York University '39, and Mary B. Smith. 
The marriage took place on June 12, 1888, in Washington,

freshman year in West Divinity. In sophomore and junior 
years he was with Johnson in West Divinity and Farnam, 
and in senior year in Farnam with McMillan. He took sev- 
eral Greek and Latin prizes while he was an undergraduate, 
and was a member of Delta Kappa, Eta Phi, Delta Kappa 
Epsilon, and Skull and Bones. 

After graduation he entered the Yale Law School, but in 
1883 he went to South Dakota and was president of a bank 
at Ipswich until 1887, when he moved to Kansas City. 
There, he says, he "answered the only question ever asked 
me in a bar examination," and was admitted. Later he 
returned to South Dakota, and practised in Ipswich from 
1888 to 1895. "Law practice in South Dakota," he writes, 
"was active but not profitable. Years of drought wiped 
out land values, and a fire burned up the town. I had been 
elected county judge by the Pops and Democrats, but the 
Republican auditor held the keys of the ballot-boxes, and on 
a recount I was not elected. As he was a Republican, and 
therefore incapable of wrong, I suppose the ballots changed 
their own markings. The combination of apparent misfor- 
tunes hastened our return to New York. Here the law en- 
ables us to own a little farm of woods and hills on Long 
Island, where we enjoy the summer. My present firm is 
Collin, Wells & Hughes, a very congenial combination. We 
are neither rich nor poor, but we enjoy our friends and envy 
none." 

Wells' New York life dates from 1895. He is a mem- 
ber of the University, Brooklyn, Yale, and Lawyers' clubs, 
and is a Presbyterian. 

On November 12, 1884, in Freeport, Illinois, he married 
Eleanore B. Fitch, daughter of Edward C. Fitch and Mar- 
garet Bonner. Mrs. Wells' parents moved to Freeport 
from Columbia County, New York, in 1850, and her more 
remote ancestors came from Scotch and English families 
whose representatives came to this country two hundred

* Joseph Ernest Whitney, son of Joseph L. Whitney, 
was born in Cornwall, Connecticut, on February 17, 1858. 
In college he roomed the first two years with Burpee in

North and South Middle, and the last two years with Storrs 
in Farnam. He was president of the Gamma Nu campaign 
committee, won composition prizes both terms of sopho- 
more year, and was on the editorial board of the Record in 
sophomore and junior years. He was a Townsend speaker, 
chairman of the Lit, and class poet. His societies were 
Gamma Nu, Psi Upsilon, and Skull and Bones. 

After graduation he had charge of a small private school 
for boys in Elmira, New York, until January, 1884, when 
he went to the Albany Academy as instructor in English and 
rhetoric. He was called thence in the summer of 1884 to 
Yale College as instructor in English, and remained there

BIOGRAPHIES 

until December, 1888, when he went to Colorado on ac- 
count of his health, which had begun to fail the previous 
year. He lived in Colorado Springs in increasing feebleness 
for over four years, and died there from hemorrhage of the 
lungs on February 25, 1893, at the age of thirty-five. His 
literary tastes were prominent in undergraduate days, and 
in spite of years of weakness he was able to do much work 
of high order in poetry and criticism; while by his courage 
and sweetness of spirit he won the deepest regard. He was 
a contributor to the Century, the American Magazine, St. 
Nicholas > Harper's Young People, Wide Awake, the Critic, 
the New Enghnulcr, and many other periodicals. 

On November 15, 1883, he married Sadie Prince Turner 
of New Haven, at Syracuse, New York. They had one 
child, Margaret, born April 13, 1886. 

During the last four years of his life, under infirmities of 
body to which most men would have succumbed in absolute 
idleness, he kept on heroically at his literary work, and the 
poems he wrote then, as well as the unfailing brightness of 
his conversation and his letters, have been, for many, an 
inspiration to better living. 

His struggle with disease did not make him bitter, and 
his cheerfulness and wit never deserted him. He interested 
himself in social betterment, and a Boys' Club, named after 
him, still exists in Colorado Springs, as a memorial. But 
more enduring than any such institution is the memorial 
which lives in the hearts of the many, East and West, who 
came under the influence of his rich and ever ripening per- 
sonality.

schools of Northampton, with the exception of two years, 
when he studied with a private tutor. He roomed alone 
during freshman year, and with Richardson the other three. 
"Rowed some on class crew," he writes, "but never in a 
race. Wanted to play first base on class nine, but Sam Hop- 
kins entered our class, and so I had no show. Tried football 
once, but Badger briefly but firmly advised me to look up 
the rules, and I was discouraged in that direction." He was 
a member of Delta Kappa, He Boule, Delta Kappa Epsi- 
lon, and Scroll and Key, and also of the Delta Kappa Epsi- 
lon campaign committee. For all four years he was a mem-

Sheffield Scientific School in the study of this profession. In 
1884 he received the degree of Ph.B., and in 1886 the 
further degree of Dynamic Engineer. In the autumn of 
1885, for the purpose of learning the practical details of his 
profession, he became a machinist apprentice in the car- 
shops of the Michigan Central Railroad Company at Jack- 
son, Michigan, where he remained nearly two years. In 
February, 1888, he was made superintendent of motive 
power of the Duluth, South Shore and Atlantic Railroad 
Company, with his residence at Marquette, Michigan. He 
resigned his position in the summer of 1889, and became 
traveling agent for the Iron Bay Company of West Duluth, 
engaged in the manufacture of mining machinery. In July, 
1890, he was appointed general agent for the Montana 
region of that company, and also of the Robinson & Cary 
Company of St. Paul. His new residence was at Helena, 
Montana, where he remained, actively engaged in business, 
until the day of his death. He died very suddenly in that 
city on March 3, 1891, of pneumonia. His remains were 
brought to the East, and were interred in the Albany Rural 
Cemetery. He was a member of the American Society of 
Mechanical Engineers and of the University Club of New 
York City, and also belonged to the Masonic Order. 

His career was full of promise, and his death was a shock 
to all who knew and loved him. There was a singular 
charm about him that will ever linger in the memory. The 
keenness of his intellect was matched by the directness of his 
purpose. When a decision was made he did not swerve 
from his aim. The depth of his inner life was hidden under 
an easy grace of manner. No one was more free from cant, 
more straightforward in speech, nor more ready with the 
tactful, kindly word in season.

Arthur Bethuel Wright 

Meriden from 1848 to 1863, and removed from there to 
New Haven, dying in the latter place on July 23, 1886. Mr. 
Wright was a lawyer, and was graduated from Wesleyan 
with the degree of B.A. in 1845. He received the degree 
of A.M. from Trinity, and the degree of LL.B. from Yale 
in 1848. His ancestors came to this country from England 
in colonial days, and were among the first settlers of Ver- 
mont. They took part in the French and Indian War, the 
Revolution, and the War of 18 12. Wright's mother was

Revolutionary War, and were among the early settlers in 
Massachusetts and Connecticut. 

Wright was born on February 23, 1862, at Meriden, Con- 
necticut, and removed to New Haven with his parents in 
1863. He prepared for college in the Hopkins Grammar 
School, entering '82 at the beginning of freshman year. He 
was a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon. 

After graduation he took the degree of LL.B. at Yale, 
and then entered upon the practice of law in New Haven 
in partnership with his father. On the death of his father 
Wright's practice called him to New York, where he was 
admitted to the bar; but his health failed, and for a number 
of years was such that he was able to give little attention to 
his professional work. Afterward he moved to Chicago, 
whither his inclinations had always led him. He writes : 

"I have traveled North and South between the two great 
oceans, and I have crossed them. I have regained my health 
long since, and I have worked at my chosen profession with 
diligence and with such success as my friends shall judge. 
My travels have made me contented, my work has made me 
happy. This I have achieved, and, according to my philos- 
ophy, if I shall thus continue to the end of the book, broad- 
ening as I progress, I shall not regret that I have no more to 
say about the present chapter." 

Wright is a member and a vestryman of the Protestant 
Episcopal Church, and is a member of the Union League 
Club of Chicago, the Church Club of Chicago, and the Mili- 
tary Order of the Loyal Legion. 

He married on May 18, 1900, at Fargo, North Dakota, 
Florence B. Henderson, the daughter of Albert C. Hen- 
derson and Harriet F. Boyington. Mrs. Wright's family is 
of English origin. They have no children. 

His business address is 567 Rookery Building, Chicago, 
Illinois, and his residence is Hinsdale, Dupage County, 
Illinois.

Ellis family was of Dutch and French origin and belonged 
to the early New York Colony. 

Bishop was born in New Brunswick on September 17, 
i860, but in early youth went abroad and attended several 
German schools and one French one. Later he returned to 
this country and was entered at St. Paul's at Concord, 
New Hampshire, to prepare for college. He was graduated

and management. For the first year he was at St. Paul's 
School. In 1883 he accepted a position in the New Jersey 
State Bureau of Statistics at Trenton. This occupied him 
for a year, until Dr. McCosh persuaded him to take hold 
of the defunct Princeton Preparatory School, with a view to 
its resuscitation. The trustees deeded the school property 
to him, and he was very successful in reviving the institu- 
tion. Finally, when the management of it became too bur- 
densome, he sold his title and good-will and bought a half- 
share in an established day-school in Cincinnati. Thither 
he moved in 1888. From 1895 to 1904 he was principal of 
the Walnut Hills High School. The University of Cincin- 
nati conferred a Ph.D. on him in 1904. Since that time he 
has been at the head of the Eastern High School in Detroit.

Buel, S. D. Thacher, both '83, and Burpee wrote a bur- 
lesque of "Medea," which, when presented at the New 
Haven Opera House by a college cast, netted a handsome 
sum for the Yale Field movement, which was then in its in-

the Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance Company. At the same 
time he is correspondent for various papers, and in 1907 
was associated with H. D. Taft, '83, in the publication of 
Publicity. He is the author of "A Military History of 
Waterbury." He has written a number of magazine arti-

"Since then I have endeavored to put in as little time for 
as big pay as possible in the grocery business, and as much 
time for as little pay as possible in out-of-door pursuits. 
Fresh-water sailing, wild-fowl and upland shooting, a little 
golf and very poor, the American trotting horse and Eng-

mining and engineering in Indiana and Illinois. He died 
March 23, 1906, at Chicago, of pneumonia, leaving a

to the coal trade in Chicago, and was greatly esteemed as a 
man of sterling qualities.

The following memorial was drawn up by Abbott 
and Dillingham under a motion passed by the 
class at its business meeting, June 25, 1907: 

Whereas our friends and classmates, Wayland 
Irving Bruce, David Anderson Chenault, Frank 
Runyon Gallaher, George Parker Richardson, 
and Frank Hiram Snell, have been taken from us 
since our last reunion, 

Resolved that we, members of the class of 
1882, gathered at the twenty-fifth anniversary of 
our graduation from Yale, do hereby personally, 
and jointly as a class, express our grief at the loss 
which we have suffered in their death. They were 
joined to us by the close ties which four years of 
college life together had woven about us, and in 
the intimacy of that life, and in the years which 
have passed since then, we found them to be true 
men and sincere, sympathetic, and steadfast 
friends. In the outside world their fine personal 
qualities, their upright lives, and the services which 
they rendered to their friends and to the public 
won them respect and esteem, and the communi- 
ties in which they lived mourn with us over their 
decease.
